HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY EVERYONE!
It’s that time of year again folks! Sure, it’s hot as the blazes outside but that doesn’t deter our determination to celebrate our nation, the good, ol’ USA! Everywhere, Old Glory is waving proudly and American is gearing up her annual Celebration. On Topsail Island the big question is “Where’s the party and the fireworks?”
If you live or are vacationing in the Topsail Island area this year, you are in luck! We have several celebrations from which to choose. So grab the family and head out to one of our great local parks and make this a Fourth to remember. Stay safe and have fun!
