Annual July 4th Children’s Bicycle Parade
Lauren Corrinet, Emily Zanios
The Annual July 4th Children's Bicycle Parade is a festive celebration for families! Held on a summer afternoon in early July, the Parade starts with an opportunity for the children to patriotically festoon their vehicles or themselves before a march down Bay Street to the historic Watch Hill Carousel. A Watch Hill Fire Truck leads the Parade! Children are given complimentary rides on the carousel at the end of the celebration and many local businesses support the event with music and balloons. Exciting and memorable for all ages, the Parade is a wonderful tribute to Independence Day!
The annual Summer Boutique is held every summer the first Friday and Saturday in August. This is a popular shopping venue under a large tent in the park on Bay Street. Over 18 vendors come from all over the country to sell their unusual, trendy and whimsical items.
