From San Juan Island Cham­ber of Commerce

The San Juan Island Cham­ber of Com­merce is excit­ed to bring back our beloved Fourth of July celebration!

Our cham­ber and com­mu­ni­ty are work­ing behind the scenes, get­ting ready for the big day. The parade entries are trick­ling in, more bunting is going up every day, the fire­works com­pa­ny is ready and we hope you are too!

Due to the past year and the short notice of this year’s parade, it will be small­er⁠ — small but mighty!

With the area church sched­ules, the parade will be at a lat­er time and will start at 11:30 a.m. Not only is it at a lat­er time, but it will be a short­er parade route and will start at the top of Spring Street and Caines Street.

Grand Mar­shall and Hon­ored Citizen

This year, the cham­ber is hon­or­ing vol­un­teerism and is proud to announce Parin Colum­na as our Grand Mar­shal and Lori Stokes as our Hon­ored Cit­i­zen. Both exem­pli­fy vol­un­teerism and com­mu­ni­ty. Their count­less hours with var­i­ous groups, the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre, the Whale Muse­um, Peace Island Hos­pi­tal, Sorop­ti­mists, the Cen­ter for Whale Research, St. Fran­cis Church, Great Island Clean up, PADs, Fri­day Har­bor Arts Com­mis­sion, Orca Net­work and so much more. Think about it, where would our com­mu­ni­ty be with­out volunteers?

After a day of activ­i­ties, there will be music at Brick­works at 6 p.m., fam­i­ly BBQs, and a breath­tak­ing fire­works dis­play over the Port of Fri­day Har­bor start­ing at 10:10 p.m. We hope to see you on the Fourth!
