4th of July

Will be on island the week of the 4th. LOVED the fireworks that surrounded the area that night and viewed from our rooftop terrace.

What we need to find out is where to see a great parade in the greater OIB vicinity. We have little kids who love parades. Help!

Southport, home of the official NC Fourth of July celebration (since 1799) has a parade every year and this year will be especially interesting. Nicholas Sparks' novel, Safe Haven, will be filming in SPT this summer and in particular will be filming the July 4th parade, so we expect to have an exciting time. There is something for every age during the weekend celebration. I'll have to look up all the activites' dates myself since the 4th falls on a Wednesday.

Addition to reply above:

On Wed., July 4th, the parade will begin at 11am at the corner of Howe and Moore streets. Fireworks are at 9pm that evening at the waterfront. Southport always draws a large crowd, so people get there early.
