What a 4th of July!

It was quite a 4th of July week on Orcas! Eastsound’s Fireworks Show on the 4th created a colorful splash across East Sound! Hundreds of locals and visitors enjoyed the view from Waterfront Park, with the Community Band playing for the crowd.

Then on Saturday, July 6th, we put on the Community Parade, with Grand Marshals Judy & Scott Whiting.
