As our BIGGEST event of the year, the 4th of July is truly a special time here at Wexford Plantation! It’s a day full of celebrations and activities for everyone in the family.
Depending on personal interests, the day may begin with our 4th of July Adult Round Robin Tournament or Children’s Fishing Tournament at the harbour.
Then once the early afternoon rolls around, our festivities really kick in high gear with our annual pre-parade party, parade and poolside cookout.
Over the years, as our membership continues to grow, so does our pre-parade party! Our pre-parade party features water slides, bounce houses, games, music and more. It’s a great time for children of all ages and families to come out, meet new neighbors and/or hang out with old friends. (Last year we welcomed around 100 children under the age of 16!) Plus – this is a great time for children and adults to decorate their bicycles and golf carts in preparation for our parade.
Our 21st Annual 4th of July Parade down Bridgetown and Wexford Club Drive begins at 4:30 pm. This is the largest in history led by a Hilton Head Fire Engine and Rescue vehicle. This is a time not only enjoyed by all those participating in the parade, but also for all members standing outside their homes spectating and cheering on the parade!
Following the parade, the membership is invited poolside for an unforgettable summer cookout! We’ll have live entertainment provided by Whitley Deputy, along with a face-painter extraordinaire! The cookout will feature favorites such as BBQ pork, baby back ribs, burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken and more! Last year the Club served over 400 members and guests – and we expect no less this year! 😉
