Fourth of July Parade in Ocean Isle Beach

The following is an article from the Brunswick Beacon.

Ocean Isle Beach to have Fourth of July parade
By STAFF REPORT
Ocean Isle Beach will celebrate Independence Day with its sixth annual Fourth of July Parade, sponsored by the Ocean Isle Property Owners Association.
Parade chairman Lynda Eagle said individual streets such as Scotland, Richmond and Laurinburg used to have their own Fourth of July parades. Having one parade for the entire town was an event the property owners association decided it would like to sponsor, Eagle said.
The parade now draws both locals and visitors, as more than 700 people participated in the parade last year and even more lined the streets and watched.
“It’s just a big family, community event that everyone enjoys,” Eagle said.
The parade will begin at 10 a.m. on the Fourth and will be led by mayor Debbie Smith.
Participants are to meet in the Museum of Coastal Carolina parking lot at 9:30 a.m. There is no official registration and no fee to march in the parade.
Entries will be judged in four categories—golf carts, floats, walkers and bicycles. Trophies will be awarded to the top three finishers, but patriotic favors and flags will be distributed to all participants. Judging will take place five minutes prior to the parade.
PARADE ROUTE
Parade participants will turn left onto Second Street from the museum parking lot.
The parade will continue down Second Street to LaGrange Street, where participants will turn right, and then turn right on First Street. The parade will continue up First Street to Halifax Street and then back onto Second Street to the museum. There is no parking allowed along the parade route.
 
When you are enjoying your stay at Ocean Isle Inn, be sure to take your family out to the patriotic parade and celebrate your country. Hurry up and book your accommodations in Ocean Isle today while rooms are still available.
