Bayview Daze Again!
Bayview Daze is fast approaching and this looks to be as good a year as previous years. I had a person at the Nickel’s Worth tell me that the Bayview Daze Fireworks have been voted consistently the best in area for years. Not sure who does the judging but I do know we give an excellent show. Of course the Fireworks are the Grand Finale for the day.
This year Bayview Daze will be on Saturday July 5th. The day starts with our world famous Parade (well maybe not world famous) but it is an event that everyone enjoys and we are not real picky about who participates in the Parade. Last year I had so much fun I changed my name from Norma Jean to Marilyn for the day.
The Parade entrants will be directed to 3rd St, head west, turn north on Spruce and then east on 4th St.
The Parade will start at 11:00 am. All entrants will receive an application for the Parade and a number
when they enter on 3rd St. The number received needs to be placed on the left hand side of the vehicle, we want the judges to know who you are!
During the rest of July 5th visitors will be able to enjoy the Street Fair which is hosted by Scenic Bay Marina. The Street Fair actually gears up on July 4th and ends on July 6th.
Don’t forget to visit the local businesses for something to eat and drink. Ralph Internet Café’, Mario’s Mexican Restaurant, The Captain’s Wheel, Chris’ Patio, JD’s Bar, and the newly opened Bayview Mercantile.
The Lighted Boat Parade will start about 9:00 pm ish or at Dusk. Tom Lloyd is leading the boat Parade this year. The Lighted Boat Parade will start at The Bitter End Marina. Angela at The Bitter End will have applications for the Boat Parade.
And at Dark the event that everyone comes for, the Fireworks. We look forward to seeing you all again! Please help us keep the Fireworks going, we always need donations.
If you are so inclined we could use help with the Parade, please call Marsha at 208-683-3276.
On another note if you run into Marsha Ritzheimer please take the time to thank her for all of the work she has done getting the Parade going. As some know it is a lot of time consuming paperwork as well as legwork. The past couple of years we have a couple of monkey wrenches thrown into the works.
Marsha has been an incredible addition to the Chamber. But then so has Ken Saunders, Chuck Murray, and Lesley Diener! The Chamber has a great Board and some pretty fantastic members.
