On Sunday July the 4th, 2021, the day began grey, but turned gradually sunnier, much like the year itself.
In the Grand Old 4th’s Pandemic Edition, friends were reunited, spontaneous fully-vaccinated hugs and high-fives ensued, and smiles (and sometimes candy) were shared. The fun runs, parades, and picnics may have been non-traditional, but they happened, and that felt like (and was) the most important thing.
Many thanks to all those who came out this weekend – We were together again, in celebration, as a community. A community that is already looking forward to packing into Winslow as we have traditionally done again next year for a non-pandemic Grand Old 4th 2022 back in the heart of a Celebrate Bainbridge week of festivities.
Until then, let’s take a look back at some magic moments from The 2021 Grand Old 4th’s BYS Fun Run, Classic Car Cruise Parade and Picnic in the Parks:
