Small Town 4th of July
4th of July Parade
Watch floats, musicians, animals and much more wind their way down Spring Street, through the heart of town and just around the corner from our Friday Harbor Inn starting at 10:30am. Make sure to pick out your favorite float; each year Island businesses compete to have the best one. Maybe your favorite will win!
The best spots for viewing go fast so be sure to stake your claim early!
Pig War Picinic
It wouldn't be the 4th of July without a great BBQ! Every year, after the parade Friday Harbor hosts the Pig War Picnic at the San Juan Historical Museum grounds. This event is full of activities for kids, pie eating contests, local musicians and of course lots of wonderful food!
Be a local; Islanders love this annual feast!
Rock the Dock
As the sun gets low in the sky, head over to the harbor and check out rock the docks! This party on the water is full of great music and dancing steps from our San Juan Island hotel!
This is a family-friendly good ole' street party!
Lounge on your private penthouse deck, take a short walk from our inn down to the marina, or throw a blanket out on the rocks down by the Friday Harbor labs. No matter what seat you choose you're inn for a spectacular show.
Located right across from the harbor, the Island Inn at 123 West is a great getaway no matter what time of year it is. With spacious penthouses for those traveling with large parties, sweets that are as good as they sound and euros for those who believe less is more we have all the bases covered!
