Independence Day Celebrations Continued
Independence day festivities continued on the nights of both the Third and Fourth of July. Deer Harbor hosted a small firework show a day early, with the main event located in Eastsound. Locals and visitors congregated on the Eastsound Waterfront Park to watch as fireworks were launched above Indian Island from a small barge. A concession stand supplied candy, drinks, and hot dogs while the community band serenaded the onlookers.
Earlier in the day a pod of transient whales visited Eastsound— they must have heard about the Island's Creatures theme! Thank you Deer Harbor Charters for capturing an image of these beautiful animals.
