As many of our guests know, tomorrow is one of our favorite days of the year on the island!

Independence Day on Sanibel delivers about as much fun as it does fireworks, and we wanted to give you a rundown of the island holiday festivities in store:


7:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.         Free Pancake Breakfast at the Sanibel Community Church

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.       Independence Day Parade down Periwinkle Way – This year’s theme is “Seas the Day!”

10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.       Family Fun at Jerry’s and Bailey’s

12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.       San-Cap Optimist’s Club 40th Annual Road Rally

Plus, you can enjoy holiday sidewalk sales all over the island, as well as barbeque specials at an assortment of favorite restaurants.

Better yet, order BBQ items from Bailey’s General Store or Jerry’s Supermarket, and they’ll deliver them to Ocean’s Reach so you can enjoy your holiday spread right here!
