4th of July Festivities

Ready to celebrate the 4th of July?  Although it’s not a “normal” year, the Wentworth Watershed Association is planning ways for our members to celebrate Independence Day in lieu of the town parade and fireworks. In case you have not heard, the town parade and fireworks are cancelled.

How can you celebrate with the friends and the Association? We have got you covered. We are hosting two great events on the 4th.  A boat parade and a light up the watershed event!

Light-up the Watershed: July 4th at 9:30 pm
The fun does not end after the parade!  Get out your battery powered flares or a bright flashlight and light up the watershed. At 9:30 put a red flashlight or LED flare out at the end of your or dock other visible spot on non-lakefront properties. There are many inexpensive battery powered flares online like this one. Keep our water quality high by using an LED flare or red flashlight!

*Note that old-fashioned fuses or pyrotechnic road flares are STRONGLY DISCOURAGED as they are terrible for the water.

Let’s show our friends and neighbors that we are all together even though we are socially distanced during these challenging times.

Our loon friends don’t appreciate fireworks. Personal use fireworks are illegal and are terrible for lake health, wildlife, our furry friends, and our neighbors with PTSD.  All public firework displays must obtain a permit in advance from the town.
