Sea Island Club members and resort guests faced no shortage of activities when deciding how to celebrate July Fourth. From June 30 to July 7, hotel staff hosted more than 70 events in various locations, turning the Independence Day festivities into a weeklong celebration. One of the most popular occasions was the 13th Annual July Fourth Parade down Sea Island Drive. A patriotic cavalcade processed along the road in creative red, white and blue ensembles. A few hours later, the Children’s Swimsuit Contest took place at the Beach Club, transforming the lawn into a patriotic catwalk for young Sea Island Club members and resort guests. July Fourth ended with a bang as the sky remained lit after sunset with the glow of fireworks, but the merriment continued through Sunday with tennis tournaments for players of all ages, games, pool activities and a luau at the Beach Club.
