What better way to remember the good ol’ days than with a classic car show. Ed Duncan with High Grade Asphalt has a beautiful Classic Car Museum in Ocean Shores and will be bringing selections from his collection to the Oyhut Bay Village Square.

Oyhut Bay is a walkable pet friendly Village. We are featuring a red, white, and blue pet parade and patriotic costume contest at 1 pm. Check in at 12:30 outside the Sales Office entry. Enter your pet for free in the fun! North beach PAWS members will be on hand to share information about their service.

Enjoy music and entertainment in our newly added, grassy landscaped Amphitheatre. Mr. Blackwatch will be performing music and entertaining the afternoon of the 4th from noon to 5 pm. Bring a blanket or chair and stay awhile.

Shop the local vendors in our Village Square. Fun booths including a home and yard décor booth from Sauer Patch Primitives, a youth entrepreneur duo "Little Business Men" featuring handmade soaps and jewelry and beach themed jewelry and art from Ocean Shores Seashells.

Make memories in our 4th of July photo booth corner, if you can stop laughing long enough from the fun props. Get #social and share the fun on our Oyhut Bay Facebook page.

Rent a bicycle from Buck’s Bikes. Bicycles for kids and adults available. Looking to explore the fresh waterways? Kayaks and lifejackets are available as well for rental.

Free Hot Dogs, lemonade and watermelon will be served on the patio from 1-4 pm, Ol’ fashioned picnic style. Enjoy the festive patriotic décor as you visit with family and friends. Dine on the balcony of the Oyhut Bay Martini and Wine Bar overlooking the Village Square activities.

The event is open to the public as well as our homeowners and guests. Stroll the patio, sit by the fountain, or cozy up to the outdoor fireplace and spend the afternoon relaxing at the Ol’ Fashioned Family Fourth at Oyhut Bay Seaside Village.
