Islanders show their inner pirate at July 4 event
Deer Isle village was lined with parade goers as the community band played, the Color Guard marched and floats filed one after another as they headed down Route 15. The theme was Pirates, something taken seriously by those participating. The day began with the annual Stonington 6 race, which was all-digital this year, and ended with games, food and fireworks at the Stonington Fish Pier.
