SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (May 16, 2014) – Saratoga Casino and Raceway today announced that they will be partnering with the community-led non-profit organization, Saratoga’s All-American Celebration Inc., to host the traditional July 4th fireworks display in Congress Park.

Saratoga Casino and Raceway has hosted an annual fireworks display for over 40 years, however due to the inordinate number of large events taking place in Saratoga Springs during the July 4th holiday week this year, they have decided to forego their annual July 3rd tradition. In lieu of the celebration at their property, Saratoga Casino and Raceway will sponsor the Saratoga’s All-American Celebration fireworks in Congress Park on July 4th.  

“We are proud to provide the fireworks display coordinated by Alonzo Fireworks and encourage our community to join us on July 4th for a full day of family fun in and around Congress Park”, stated Skip Carlson, Saratoga Casino and Raceway Vice President of External Affairs.  

The all-day Celebration will consist of a variety of activities downtown including the Firecracker Road Race, Parade, All-American BBQ & Dessert tasting festival, Classic Car Show, historic tours, and living history, and will culminate with the reading of the Declaration of Independence and fireworks display in Congress Park at 9:30pm.

Kate Jarosh, President, Board of Directors of Saratoga’s All-American Celebration Inc. said, “We are excited to bring our two long-standing traditions together for one fantastic fireworks display on July 4th this year!  Our annual All-American Celebration is funded entirely by generous donations from local partners like Saratoga Casino and Raceway.  We encourage everyone to visit our website, see the events list, frequent these companies, and join us in Downtown Saratoga Springs this July 4th.”
