Independence Day celebrations
After taking a year off, Block Island will see a return of festivities to celebrate Independence Day.
The Double Enders Committee is planning for its annual fireworks display to be held on Friday, July 2. The rain date will be Monday, July 5.
The parade will also be held on Monday, July 5. It steps off from the New Harbor Boat Basin at 11 a.m. Those who wish to join in with a float, antique car, or just a costume to walk – or roller-blade in, should line up at the Boat Basin between 9:30 and 10:30 on the morning of the parade.
This year’s parade theme is “Celebrating America,” and the Grand Marshals will be the staff from the Block Island branch of the U.S. Postal Service, led by Postmaster Becky Brown.
Happy Fourth of July everyone!
