Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration

The Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration starts with a parade at 10am and ends with a bang of fireworks at 9pm. What happens between is up to you.July 4th is now just four days away.  Half the year is already gone.  How will you be celebrating our nation’s birthday?  Might I suggest the Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration?

Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration

The Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration starts off nicely with a fun parade at 10am.  Beginning at Broad St, floats, bands and more entries will wind their way to Third St.  From there, they will continue north to 5th Ave.  Then, they will turn east on 5th and make their way south on 8th St.  After they pass City Hall, the parade will end at 8th Ave and 8th St.  I suggest you get there a little early to find your spot along the parade route.  It gets crowded quickly.  Bring a lawn chair with you for comfort.

The City of Naples hosts their annual July 4th fireworks at 9pm.  Watch as the skies over our Naples community light up with hundreds of bursting lights.  The fireworks launch from the Naples Pier.  The weather man is predicting warm, humid weather on Monday.  Highs might get to the low 90s during the day, with a 50% chance of rain.  It should cool off a little by the time the fireworks start.  Dress appropriately.

Here is some advice for dog lovers to heed before heading out to the Naples 2016 Independence Day Celebration.  Your furry friend may be the light of your life.  However, even the calmest pet can freak out in crowds.  Random little kids barrel towards them, holding out their hands to “pet the doggy”.  Hundreds of pairs of legs are everywhere.  And don’t get me started on the multitude of wonderful new smells that make their way to your dog’s nostrils.  Please keep them at home, especially when you go see the fireworks.  A dog’s hearing is much more sensitive than a human’s.  The loud boom can reduce them to a puddle of shaking nerves.  If you must have them with you, keep them leashed.  This is for their safety as well as those around you.  Enjoy the day!

Marco Island 2016 Vet Toiletry Drive Ends Soon

The deadline for the Marco Island 2016 Vet Toiletry Drive is Saturday, June 25th. Drop off your donation at participating businesses before then.When you go on vacation, do you grab the toiletries provided by the hotel and take them home for later?  If you’re like me, you probably have several bottles of decorative unused sample-size shampoo, body soap and mouthwash on display in the guest bathroom.  There’s a better way to put these to use.  Donate them to the Marco Island 2016 Vet Toiletry Drive.
