Celebrate July 4th in and around Cooperstown, New York!

Annual Springfield July 4th Parade, Cooperstown Fireworks at Otsego Lake

The ultimate small-town America 4th of July parade starts annually at 11 a.m. in Springfield Center, NY. and includes a barbecue and concert. The Springfield Parade is ultimately a celebration of true American spirit from proud Veterans marching to the crackerjack sounds of the Richfield High School marching band. Here you can see the great people that make up these true American communities like Milford, Roseboom, Cherry Valley, Springfield and Fort Plain. There's always a nice person sitting right next to you, offering a kind "hello", pleasant conversation and strong support for the "service" men and women heroes -- from policemen to military proudly holding their heads high while marching through this friendly little town, 11 miles north of Cooperstown on Route 80. The Springfield 4th of July Parade is the second oldest continuously running parade in America (Bristol, RI, takes first honors)

The Cooperstown NY 4th of July fireworks (date varies) at Otsego Lake is simply spectacular with the beautiful Lakefront Park location on Otsego Lake and an very impressive fireworks display. Before the fireworks, the Cooperstown Community Band plays some wonderful music and the fresh air of the Otsego County night brings a refreshing feel.
