Island Update

The 4th of July is the king of small town celebrations. Bar Harbor is no exception. It was a beautiful day on the island, bright and sunny, and not too hot. Every year the day opens with a pancake breakfast (wild Maine blueberry, of course). After everyone had their fill, spectators lined the street for the parade. Kids and adults alike dressed in costumes to participate. Local businesses created small floats, and of course the Shriners zipped around in their little cars. The parade marched down Main Street and past the Christmas Spirit® Shop, providing an excellent view from our front step.

Throughout the day, bands played and a festive air prevailed. When tummies rumbled again, a seafood lunch was served for all on the ball fields – lobsters, muscles, clams and more, in true Maine fashion. At the close of the day, fireworks were launched over the harbor. Sparkling lights reflected on the water to the ooos and ahhhs of kids and kids-at-heart. It was a full and fun day, and all returned to their beds sun-soaked and happy.
