2014 Grand Old 4th of July

Bainbridge Island’s biggest party!

We hope you were able to attend and participate in the Grand Old 4th of July Parade and Community Celebration on Friday, July 4th, 2014. The 47th Grand Old 4th included a Pancake Breakfast, all-day Street Fair, foot races (benefiting Bainbridge Youth Services), a Classic Car Show, Historic Baseball Game, Music, Food, Entertainment, a Beer Garden, and plenty of Family Fun—all capped off by the “Best Small Town Parade in America.” The mile-long parade always begins at 1 p.m. sharp!

The Grand Old 4th is produced and presented by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, with the help of dozens of volunteers and a handful of loyal sponsoring businesses.
