After two years of fund-raising struggle, the annual 4th of July fireworks display on Sanibel Island will be manged by the Chamber of Commerce. God bless them and the Presenting Sponsor this year – John & Jay at John R Wood Realtors.
This year’s display will be at dusk Wednesday Night, July 4th, 2012. Usually, the display is launched over water from the foot of Bailey Road. As a result, hundreds of cars will park on the Causeway Islands to view. Another option is to watch from boats. But, there is a safety zone patrolled by the authorities to assure compliance.
There also is an island 4th of July parade. Since everyone in the parade and along the route (Periwinkle Way) knows each other, it’s home town affair. Watch for water pistols coming from the parade and the audience. You have been warned.
We can’t think of anything that is more TRUE SANIBEL than this. Book now at the the West Wind Inn to assure you have a room.
