BALLSTON SPA: Bicentennial bash

John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band will play at night. The band is best known for the music behind the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers," and for the hit song, "On the Dark Side." "The Back 40 Band" will also play, and there will be a performance by the newly crowned Saratoga Idol, Debbie Tai.

"This is my favorite event of the year, and with all the wonderful family events that this community has each year, that's a strong statement," said Stevens of the annual party. "Watching the kids and their parents enjoying a great day outdoors, hearing the laughter and seeing the smiles on the children's faces makes this a fun day for me. It is a lot of work, but somehow it doesn't like work when the reward is everyone having a great time."

The evening will conclude with what Romano is calling the "biggest fireworks display ever."

"Our fireworks show will put the annual July 4 show at the plaza in downtown Albany to shame," said Romano.

The event is sponsored by the Village of Ballston Spa, The Town of Milton, the Town of Ballston, the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors, and the Saratoga Youth Bureau. A grant from Assembly Minority Leader Jim Tedisco, R-Schenectady, helped fund the event. ""
