Southport Fourth of July Festivities
characterized by cannon salutes throughout the day
from ships anchored at harbor. In 1972 it was incorpo-rated
as the North Carolina 4th of July Festival, a non-profit
officially sanctioned by the secretary of state.
To keep maritime traditions afloat, the festival will
include a freedom flotilla across the Southport water-front
on July 2. There will also be a paddlers parade
on June 30 in the Davis Canal for kayakers and stand-up
paddleboarders to show off their patriotic spirit.
The event’s naturalization ceremony may be most
emblematic of the lofty ideals in place at the time of
our nation’s founding. It became a part of the festival in
1996, providing a platform for individuals to take their
Oath of Allegiance. More than 700 new citizens have
taken their oath during the ceremonies since 2007.
Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and
Kure Beach locals who have enjoyed taking their bike
over to Southport from Fort Fisher in the past may be
interested to know that the price for transport is still
$2. The ferry runs approximately every 45 minutes.
Reservations are not taken.
