SARATOGA SPRINGS – In another sign of comeback, Saratoga Springs will host its first major road race in a year and a half.

Organizers say the "Firecracker 4" will provide the spark everyone’s been waiting for.

The "Firecracker 4" been a part of the Fourth of July celebration for 15 years. Thousands of people start their holiday morning at the starting line. It’s a four-mile road race through downtown Saratoga Springs.

Last year, the pandemic forced organizers to put on a virtual event.

However, this year, thanks to the lifting of COVID restrictions, the show will go on and organizers are expecting a big turnout because of pent-up demand for in-person races.
