My family has a cabin in Point Roberts, Washington which is about 45 minutes from where I live in New Westminster BC, Canada. Since Point Roberts is in the US, they go all out for the 4th of July. This year they are having a parade and I just found out that the Grand Marshall will be David Hewlett (he plays Dr. Rodney MaKay on Stargate: Atlantis). Since I'm a huge fan of the show and Rodney in particular so I'm pretty psyched.

Have a blast – July 4th
Point Roberts Goes to Outer Space. With one foot in Canada and the other in the United States, the tiny peninsular town of Point Roberts follows their own set of rules. Case in point: This year, their 4th of July hoedown comes complete with an outer space/fantasy theme. What this means is that their noontime parade will likely transport you to a different world. (After all, the Grand Marshall will be none other than actor David Hewlett from Stargate Atlantis.) Follow that up with a Family Funfest and a party at Lighthouse Park from 12-6pm and you’re good to go.
COST: Free. INFO: 945-1272 or pointrobertschamber.com
