Whidbey to ring in the New Year with fireworks display in Oak Harbor


The first ever New Years Eve fireworks display on Whidbey Island will be held at 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31, at Windjammer Park in Oak Harbor.

While the Oak Harbor Chamber’s long-standing 4th of July display exceeds the New Year’s show in length – 12 minutes compared to 22 minutes – Thursday’s show has its own surprises.

The New Year’s Eve show will feature fireworks 100 feet higher than before and 100 feet wider, according Greater Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Christine Cribb.

The new event was funded by the chamber’s inaugural golf tournament earlier this year, in addition to sponsors which include:
