Businesses in the Burlington area are gearing up for the Burlington Waterfront’s Third of July fireworks on Monday.
“Anytime Burlington brings people to the area it helps our businesses immensely. It’s really great for the area. It’s great for our businesses, it’s great for the Church Street Marketplace,” Michael Williams, the owner of Kountry Kart Deli, said.
Williams has been organzing the food venders at the annual Independence Day celebration for the last three years.
“Had a lot of fun working with the city, working with the group of vendors we’ve put together,” he said. “We have a really great line up of vendors coming down for this year’s event.”
One of those vendor’s is Al’s French Fries. Shane Bissionette, the co-owner, says they’ll be selling burgers, hotdogs and fries, like every year.
The family owned business looks forward to July Third, to share their fan favorite food.
“Definitely the French fries,” Bissionette said. “We’re bringing a lot of fries.”
And by a lot, he means about 4,000 pounds.
“Everyone’s out celebrating the fourth of July, the Independence of our nation and just families– you see a lot of families come down. A lot of young kids,” Bissionette said.
“Please bring an appetite when you come down to the waterfront,” Williams said.
There will be 10 different vendors lining the way down to the waterfront on Monday.
