Marco Island’s community celebration of the Fourth of July is two stories, or one story in two chapters. First, there’s the daytime beach party, Uncle Sam’s Sand Jam at Residents’ Beach, put on by the Marco Island Civic Association, with help from Lola Dial of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. Act two comes after dark, when the professional fireworks are fired off from a barge anchored offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, augmented by more than a few amateur pyrotechnic displays launched from the beach itself.

Marco Island has been setting its alarm clocks early on Easter morning for a quarter century. Sunday morning, thousands thronged the beach behind the Madeira condominium and the Marriott hotel for the 25th Anniversary Easter Sunrise Service, trooping down Collier Blvd. in the predawn darkness carrying blankets, beach chairs, and still dozing toddlers.
They heard a message of hope and resurrection, mirrored by the sun rising in a beautiful sky behind the stage, with just enough clouds to paint a spectacular display in the east. The principal Easter message, entitled “Would You Believe It?” was delivered by the Rev. Bruce Fiol, who as founding pastor of the Marco Presbyterian Church delivered the sermon on Marco’s first Easter dawn service on the beach, back in 1988.
