Bainbridge Rotary sale, Grand Old Fourth festivities return

Several island traditions return this weekend for the Independence Day holiday, packing activities for island residents over the next few days.

Rotary sale starts Saturday morning

The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island will hold its 62nd annual auction and rummage sale on Saturday to raise money for community projects through local nonprofit organizations and funds.

Patrons can browse the setup and scope out deals in advance for a $ 2 donation. A special preview event is scheduled for Friday evening.

The sale begins at 8 am on Saturday at Woodward Middle School, 9125 Sportsman Club Road. Snacks and hot dogs will be available for purchase, and masks are recommended.

More than $ 1.6 million has been raised and distributed to community projects through auction proceeds over the past five years. For more information visit or find the Rotary Auction on Facebook.

Street dance highlights Sunday events

The traditional July 3 Street Dance will take over Winslow Way on Sunday evening, hosted by the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association. The event, which was first held in 1987, is part of a weekend full of activities to mark the Independence Day weekend and turns the island’s main street into a pedestrian-only plaza between Eriksen Avenue to Madison Avenue, beginning at noon.
