You’re invited to attend and participate in the Grand Old Fourth of July Parade and Community Celebration on July 4th.

The Grand Old Fourth includes a Pancake Breakfast, all-day Street Fair, Foot races (benefiting Bainbridge Youth Services), a Classic Car Show, Historic Baseball Game, Music, Food, Entertainment, a Beer Garden, and plenty of Family Fun – all capped off by the “Best Small Town Parade in America.” The mile-long parade begins at 1 p.m. sharp!

Family entertainment includes the popular Valentine’s Performing Pigs, Alley Oop, pony rides, bouncy house, Big Purple Slide, miniature golf, the Kitsap Mounted Posse, and more.

The Grand Old Fourth is produced and presented by the Chamber of Commerce, with the help of dozens of volunteers and a handful of loyal sponsoring businesses.

The Street Fair is located in the Town & Country parking lot, on Bjune and Brien streets and in Waterfront Park. It features more than 100 arts and crafts, food, non-profit and information booths. The 10 x 10 booth spaces range from $65 to $310. The Street Fair is held from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. The Pancake Breakfast, benefiting the Bainbridge High School Boosters Club, begins at 7 a.m.

The Parade begins at 1 p.m. As in years past, we expect thousands of people to line the one-mile parade route to watch this wonderful small-town event unfold. Parade applications are just $25 for non-profits and neighborhood groups; $35 for commercial enterprises and/or politicians.

The Classic Car Show will again be held. Last year, more than 80 vehicles participated and we expect a similar number this year. Applications are $20 per car.

Music and entertainment will be at the Town & Country parking lot stage and Watefront Park.

ShuttlesBusses
will run every fifteen minutes from 9:30 AM to 6 PM from the following locations:
First Baptist Church (Madison & HWY 305),
Ace Hardware parking lot,
and Kitsap Bank parking lot

The day will wrap up with a fireworks display over Eagle Harbor at dusk, organized by Bainbridge Fireworks, a non-profit corporation.
