Independence Day Celebration
Independence Day on the Eastsound Village Green was commemorated with enthusiasm on July 1—a lively parade celebrating island creatures featured local veterans, Four Winds Campers and the State Park Service, cameos of the recently sighted bear, Eastsound mayor candidates and classic cars filled with stuffed animals. The roads and surrounding parking were closed allowing room for the mass of people that came out to celebrate. Some even set up seats hours ahead just to secure their prime viewing locations. As always, our staff appreciated Orcas Island Realty’s up front and center location of 123 North Beach Road—unless they were in the parade of course!
