Holiday festivities, rummage sale return to Bainbridge Island

The three-day marathon of holiday happenings that surround Indepedence Day on Bainbridge Island is set to return in full patriotic pageantry next week.

Technically, things begin Friday, June 28, as that is the start of donations being accepted for the annual Bainbridge Island Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale at Woodward Middle School.

Drop-offs will continue, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, through Tuesday, July 2.

After that, the fun begins in earnest.

The July 3 Street Dance will see live music, food vendors, family fun and, of course, dancing in the street from 6 to 11 p.m. Winslow Way will once more be closed to traffic.

Visit www.bainbridgedowntown.org for more information.

The star-spangled star of the summertime show, the 52nd Grand Old 4th of July itself, begins with the 40th annual Bainbridge Youth Services Fun Run at 9 a.m.

Early registration is going on now through July 3 (visit www.bifunrun.org) and race-day signups will be held from 7 to 8:30 a.m. at Winslow Green.

The 1-mile race begins promptly at 9 a.m., followed by the 5K at 9:15 and the Kids Dash event at 10:30 a.m.

All proceeds benefit programs supporting local youth.

The traditional pancake breakfast will be going on in the Town & Country Market parking lot from 7 to 11 a.m.

The street fair takes over Bjune and Brien drives from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with arts and crafts, food and information booths, live music, a photo exhibit, Young Artisan Market, and Kids’ Zone with musical games, puppet show, pony rides and activities.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Classic, Antique and Special Interest Car Show will be on display in the parking lots behind Columbia and Chase banks.

At 9:30 a.m., at Bainbridge High School, the annual Stars & Strikes Old Timer’s Baseball Game will take the field.

A beer-and-wine garden will be set up at the corner of Bjune and Shannon drives from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the That’s A Some Pizza eating contest will take over the central stage in the Town & Country parking lot at 11:30 a.m.

The parade begins at 1 p.m., along Madison Avenue and Winslow Way.
