july-4-st-george-Island-paradeOn St. George Island, the 4th of July is one of our most popular summer events. It’s only a couple of days away which means the Island is bustling with guests ready to celebrate Island style!

This is the busiest time of year and yet there is still plenty of room to stretch out on our beaches.

If you haven’t visited during this very popular week, we encourage you to consider it for next year.  Amazing events are waiting for you!

St. George Island Festivities

On July 4th at 11:00 am, everyone is invited to celebrate Independence Day on St. George Island by participating in our very own 4th of July parade.  Run, walk or ride – just be sure to dress for the occasion and don’t forget your water gun!  Parade lineup is at 10:30 am at 3rd Street and West Pine. Prizes will be awarded for “Best Float”, “Best Theme” and “Best Decoration”. Bring your squirt guns but NO water balloons (harmful to wildlife).
When the sun goes down, The Blue Parrot will host its annual Freedom Fest with their own fireworks show.

Apalachicola Festivities

The Apalachicola Independence Day celebration happens on Wednesday, July 3rd.  Historic Apalachicola Main Street encourages everyone to attend.  Festivities begin at 5 pm with music, food and children’s activities in Riverfront Park.

If you want to be in the Red, White and Blue parade, go to Lafayette Park at 6:30 pm.
Those who choose to watch the parade can do so from Water Street between Battery Park and Riverfront Park from 7 to 7:30 pm.  At 7:30 pm, gather for the Ice Cream Social in Riverfront Park.Just before dusk there will be a special tribute to our Country’s Veterans featuring the Hillside Community Choir.  Music will continue until 11 pm.  At dusk, a brilliant fireworks display will reign over the Apalachicola Bay.
We’re not kidding about the need to plan now for next year!  We already have over 100 confirmed reservations for the 4th of July week in 2014.
