Our personal favorite…. Celebrate America at Freeland Park is back on July 3rd! This event is walking distance to the house — your location couldn’t be more perfect! Just stroll down the beach to the family-fun fair at Freeland Park, then head back to the deck at A Home On The Harbor for a fantastic fireworks show over the harbor. Fair begins at 5pm and fireworks at 10pm.

July 4th you can head up to Windjammer Park in Oak Harbor for food trucks, arts and crafts booths, games, and a fireworks show, all starting at 10 am. Downtown Oak Harbor will be all red, white, and blue for the city’s annual Independence Day Parade.  The parade starts at 11 am at Midway Blvd & SE Pioneer Way.
