Independence Day Parade

4th 14th 2Our nation’s birthday is celebrated on Beaver Island like no place else and the parade is the highlight of the day for most.  The theme for the 2019 parade is “Discover Beaver Island – America at its Best!”   Want to march or enter a float? Contact the BI Chamber of Commerce for details, but really all you have to do is line up with the gang south of town on King’s Highway.  Can’t make it to the island for the Fourth?  We’re sorry about that, but your friends on the island have your back.  WVBI presents live coverage of the parade with down to the earth color commentary and play by play form world famous WVBI on-air personalities.  Dial it up worldwide at or on your smart speaker with “Play WVBI.”  And, if you subscribe to Beaver Island News on the Net, Joe Moore will provide live video of the parade from a perch somewhere alng its path (with replays available later).
