The results are in. From Tammy Whitty-Brown, the Executive Director of the Schroon lake Area Chamber of Commerce:
"The Schroon Lake Parade Committee would like to thank everyone who had a part making the 2016 4th of July Parade such a success this year. Everyone from financial contributers, volunteers, and Chamber and Town employees worked together to make this another spectacular 4th of July. In addition, the parade would not be the parade with out all the participants.
Each year there are four volunteer judges that individually judge four categories: Antique Car, Floats, Fire Department and Horses. They use a newly developed matrix sheet (2015) that allows them to score each of these categories by looking at Showmanship, Technical Skill, Originality, Presentation, and Entertainment.
The winners in the four categories for our 2016 Parade Participants are as follows:
1st Place goes to Mr. Gary Egan of Schroon and his 1932 Red Ford Coup
2nd Place goes to Pat Salerno of Porth Henry and his 1957 Chevy Bellaire
3rd Place goes to Rick Bump of Pottersville and his 1969 Camaro-502 Engine
1st Place goes to the Word of LIfe Dunk Team
2nd Place goes to Schroon Lake Emergency Rescue Squad
3rd Place goes to The Lost Descendents of South Schroon
1st Place goes to Ticonderoga Volunteer Fire Department
2nd Place was tied between Schroon Lake Volunteer Fire Department and Pottersville Volunteer Fire Department.
3rd Place goes to Horicon Fire Department

We would like to CONGRATULATE OUR WINNERS!
In addition, we would like to thank our 2016 Judges, Christine Tribou, Bill Tribou, Donna Moses & Ashley Whitty for volunteering their services this year".
