The Fairport-Perinton Chamber of Commerce annually organizes and hosts Fairport’s Fourth of July celebration, including a race, parade and party-in-the-park.
The 2017 sponsors include Wegmans, Lyons National Bank, the village of Fairport and the town of Perinton.
Yellow Jacket Racing kicked off the day’s celebration by hosting a race with 743 runners registering. The second phase of the festivities was the parade. More than 400 individuals participated in this year’s parade on 21 cars, 15 trucks, three tractors and walking on the streets. The parade began on Whitney Road and ends at Perinton Park where the party-in-the park started.
Attendees had a selection of food from Fairport Lions Club, Fairport Brewing Co., Festival Foods, Effortlessly Healthy and Chef’s Kitchen. Adventures in Climbing had a bounce house and zip-line. The Skycoasters provided live music.
