The 4th of July in Jackman is always a fun day. It usually starts with a parade through town. Not only locals participate but we have a group of our guests that enter the parade every year. And win! SO feel free to join in the fun, even if you are just visiting.
After the parade, here at Cozy Cove, we have our annual potluck picnic with our guests. If you are not staying with us this year, you are still invited. Just bring a dish to share.
At dusk, the town has an awesome fireworks display. Some say it is the best in Maine.
This year the JMMRCOC is sponsoring A FREEDOM RACE in the morning of the 4th. They hope to make this an annual event too. Anyone is welcome to participate. The best part, we can cheer on the racers from our shore or along Main street.
Below is some information on the parade and the Freedom Race.
