If you have never been to Nantucket during the 4th of July you are really missing something special. The island is full of activities with islanders and visitors alike showing their patriotic spirit in true fashion, Blue Beetle fashion especially. It all starts with a Firecracker 5k road race in the morning, bright and early to beat the heat!
Blue Beetle Fashion
Main Street comes alive mid-morning in preparation for the annual town water fight with the fire department spraying their hoses all over the street to kick it off. Everyone gets involved with whatever water dispenser they can find. I don't think there is a dry person on the entire street!

Blue Beetle showing our USA!
Every year thousands of beach-goers blanket Nobadeer Beach on the South side of the island - this year there were over 7,000 people. We were happy to see lots of people wearing our new Island Love Tee! As you can see this beach is right by the airport which makes for good viewing.
The day ends with a beautiful sunset - perfect setting for fireworks!
We hope you can make it to Nantucket next year for the 4th of July! If you do, please stop in and say hello.
