NOTABLE NEWS and EVENTS
 
INDEPENDENCE DAY at the BEACH 2022
 
July 4th fell on a Monday this year.  A special appreciation to our Police and Fire Departments!!!  The town was packed.  It was a lovely, cool day and evening, and the nighttime brought tons of firework displays on the Beach.  See my pictures and video on my website at www.OceanShoresInfo.com/pics/july4th2022.html.
 
5-STAR DEALERSHIP'S SAND & SAWDUST FESTIVAL 2022
 
The popular and fun Sand and Sawdust Festival is held on the Beach and at the Convention Center.  It was very warm where temperatures reached into the mid-80s.  See my pictures and video on my website at www.OceanShoresInfo.com/pics/sandsawdustfestival2022.html.
 
FLAG DAY PARADE 2022
 
Celebrating the United States Flag, Old Glory, flying high and celebrating its symbol of our Freedom.  I did not get many pictures and video because I was in the parade with my church, but still check out my pictures and video on my website at www.OceanShoresInfo.com/pics/flagdayparade2022.html.  It was a great day!
