Happy 4th of July from Lizzie Lu’s Island Retreat!

July 4th is upon us and, consistent with past years, there will be a lot of celebrating happening on Anna Maria Island!

Start the day off by watching the Independence Day parade.  It will start at 10am and travel from Coquina Beach (south end of the Island) to the City Pier (north end of the Island) and is anticipated to have over 100 participants.  It is hosted by the Anna Maria Island Privateers.  If you are staying at one of the Lizzie Lu properties, head east to Palm Drive, set up your chairs, and get ready to enjoy some interesting floats, plenty of music, beads, and candy, and of course lots of RED, WHITE, and BLUE!

After sunset, the Sand Bar Restaurant will host their 28th Annual Fireworks show!  These are visible from the beach directly by Lizzie Lu’s properties.  We hope you will enjoy your time on the island this holiday either with us at a Lizzie Lu property or wherever you may find yourself on our great little island.  Please have fun with your family and friends and stay safe!
