Boca Grande residents have always made due with their Fourth of July plans and fireworks, but next year may be different.
At their last meeting on Tuesday, July 10, the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce discussed the possibility of holding an island Fourth of July celebration next year, including fireworks and a barbecue.
A possible location discussed was South Beach, and a possible date was July 3. That way there would be no interference with other local fireworks displays, and those who came to the party wouldn’t have to go to work the next day.
The board also discussed other dates for next year. The World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament weekend will be held on May 23 and 24, and the Tarpon Festival will be held on May 25. Ladies Day will be held on Mother’s Day, May 11, because good tides will prevail once again on that maternal day.
