Bainbridge celebrates Fourth of July in grand fashion

A festive crowd in the thousands jammed city streets in Winslow Wednesday for Bainbridge Island’s biggest bash of the year — it’s Independence Day hootenanny.

At top, the crusty crew of Blackbird Bakery march along Winslow Way with an “I Love Toast” theme.

The annual parade stretched for more than two hours, but few dared to leave early.

Proving they know how to party, islanders also filled downtown Winlsow on July 3 for the town’s annual street dance.
