A Cobleskill Community Celebration Block Party

By Elizabeth Barr

COBLESKILL – The Independence Day Celebration for Schoharie County in Cobleskill is funded entirely by your donations each year.  The Friends of the Fourth is a volunteer organization that gathers your donations to assure that there are fireworks on the Fourth of July. The cost is $5000 this year.

 Friends of the Fourth contracts with the company to put on the display and obtains the permits required to give you all a spectacular show.  There are collection containers at Pizza Shack, Little Italy and the Cobleskill Diner.  The group has approached businesses to see if they would be interested in donating. If you would like to donate, please go to the website where you can donate online.  If the goal is met for this year, any additional proceeds will go toward next year.  You can also donate at a GO Fund me link, found online: Donate to Schoharie County Independence Day Celebration, organized by Friends of the Fourth

The Friends of the Fourth will be at the Community Celebration Block Party sponsored by Locomotions Sports Bar & Grill, 136 Railroad Avenue, Cobleskill for their one-year celebration on June 15th.  The American Tavern will be celebrating its 11th year with customer appreciation events. There will be a donation bucket and will be raffling off baskets for Friends of the Fourth. Bring the family down to enjoy the festivities. Hot dogs and burgers for $1, FREE Sno Cones and cotton candy, a bounce house, a mechanical bull, face painting, a dunk tank and a party tent with a bar. The event begins at 11 am and features Mixtape Revival at noon, a corn hole tournament at 1 pm, Crossfire at 4 pm, and Basket Raffle Drawing at 7 pm and at 9 pm the events move inside. Hope to see you there!
