The entire island is gearing up to celebrate America’s 235th birthday this weekend! Our annual fireworks display is July 3rd, but the celebrations will be in full force all over the island all weekend. Mermaid Cottages wants to join Tybee Island Mayor, Jason Buelterman, in reminding everyone to make this holiday a fun but safe one!
Despite our recent rain, the island is still under extreme drought conditions. Setting off your own fireworks is always dangerous, even when drought conditions are low. But setting off fireworks isn’t just dangerous…it is against Georgia state law. So please, it is extremely important to follow the rules and avoid the use of personal fireworks. The City of Tybee will be ramping up enforcement, so just don’t do it- it could put property and lives at risk. There are plenty of others ways to celebrate anyway! Mermaid Cottages wants to encourage you to come out to the beach and join us July 3rd for the annual public fireworks display! It’s put on my professionals, and hey, who doesn’t like a free show…no work required?!
Thank you for choosing to celebrate the holiday with us here on beautiful Tybee Island! Let’s make it a super fun and super safe one! See you on the beach and Happy 235th America!
