If it’s the Fourth, then we can expect the annual Bolinas-Stinson Beach Tug of War.  The MarinIJ reported that the Bolinas men and the Stinson Beach women emerged victors in 2009. Thanks to Bill and June at for this terrific video.

Even the local creatures got into the spirit with their play!  (Photo by Rob Lawson)
