SCHUYLERVILLE — The annual Turning Point Parade and weekend festival takes place in the village of Schuylerville Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6-7. 

The event celebrates the ”turning point” of the American Revolution – following the defeat of the British Army at the battles of Saratoga and subsequent surrender in 1777, grounding their arms at present-day Fort Hardy Park.  The American victory convinced France to join the war and support the American cause.

The festival gets underway 4 p.m. at Fort Hardy Park and includes live music and a nightfall fireworks show. The parade steps off at 1 p.m. Sunday. For more information, go to: turningpointparade.com.
