Celebrating the seaside

Crowds flocked to the beach in front of Palace Playland in Old Orchard Beach on Monday, July 9 to enjoy the sun during the 82-degree weather. The city hosted a variety of events for the week of the Fourth of July, including the annual Ocean Park sand sculpture contest July 3, fireworks on both July 4 and July 5, a patriotic concert at the Seaside Pavilion, and the annual Ocean Park Fourth of July parade. Tourists and locals alike can find information on Old Orchard Beach events on the calendar of oldorchardbeach.com/events.
