INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION - SATURDAY JUNE 30TH
The Village of Cold Spring is busy putting the finishing touches on a full roster of activities for everyone in our community to celebrate Independence Day and the Bicentennial of the West Point Foundry. Festivities will kick off with a parade down Main Street starting at 4:00 led by this years' Grand Marshal, Joe Etta. The West Point “Hell Cats” will join the celebration as well as the Hudson Highland’s Pipe Band! Included in the days' festivities are slides and bouncers for kids, a pie baking contest for the local gourmet enthusiasts, live music, food & drink vendors, a bike decorating contest, a patriotic pet parade and of course a spectacular fireworks display.
