We are closing in on one of the favorite days to be on Kinderhook Lake – July 4th, Independence Day. The KLC will be hosting the usual array of events including bringing back the popular kayak rally.

Kayak Rally
This event is open to all non-motorized vessels – kayaks, rowboats, canoes, paddleboards, rafts, etc. Between 8:30 and 11:30 AM collect tickets from nearly 30 orange-flagged locations spread around the lake. Write your name and phone number on each ticket. Don’t forget a plastic bag and pen to collect your tickets and keep them dry.
Important, due to the limited space at the launch and anticipated crowds for this event, please bring your tickets to the tan and green metal building at 9 OLD West Shore Dr in Valatie by 12-noon to be entered into the prize drawing. 

Boat Parade
Decorate your boats and meet at One Tree Island at 1:30. Follow the lead boat as you parade around the lake, hootin’ and hollerin’ all the way. Prizes will be awarded to the Most Patriotic, Most Unique, and Funniest boats.

Ring of Fire
Light your flares and torches along the shoreline at 9:00 pm for a lovely bright ring around the lake. The more flares, the better. 

Note: Flares and KLC merchandise will be available at the tan and green metal building at 9 OLD West Shore Dr in Valatie from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on July 4th. If you need them sooner or cannot make it on the 4th, please call Pete Walkes at 914-217-6770.
