Don’t miss the annual Block Island July 4 parade, starting at 11am from Veterans Park, just south of Great Salt Pond. Come early and take your place along the parade route so you can watch the floats, bands, clowns, and kids marching in formation across the island.

For 2020, the parade theme is "Where in the World." Dress up your float to show off your favorite city or place - anywhere in the world. Even Block Island! 

After the parade ends, head over to the Fire Barn on Beach Ave. for another traditional Block Island event, the Annual Steak Fry benefiting the Block Island Fire Department. From 12:30 to 3:30, they’ll be serving up an All-American feast of steak, corn on the cob, watermelon and salad. In a word, yum.
