July 4 BC

July 4 a big day for Big Canoe kids, dogs, visitors and residents

July Fourth is never dull in Big Canoe and this year was no exception.

With dogs dressed in their patriotic wear, vying for the blue ribbon, kids on decorated bikes, trikes and even a John Deere tractor with a photogenic driver, and the traditional road race, it was Red, White and Blue all day. Swimming at the Wildcat Pool and the lakes were cooling off spots for the hot day. On the playfield a water slide was a way of cooling off the children among the other activities set up for family participation. At lunch time, The Varsity truck rolled up to dispense the perfect Fourth of July hotdogs and those famous fried onion rings.

This year the annual fireworks to end the day was moved from Lake Petit to Lake Sconti to keep from upsetting the eagles and their two eaglets. As their own salute to America one eagle, spotted by public safety/firefighter Isaac Holaway while on the lake patrolling Petit, flew over the lake and circled Eagle Island. “It was so cool,” Holaway said.
