Apr 16, 2024 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments


Local residents have the opportunity to help put a bang into this year’s Fourth of July celebration by purchasing tickets for the Oak Harbor Independence Day Reverse Raffle. The event will be held at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 11. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner is at 6 p.m., and the drawing begins at 6:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Oak Harbor Independence Day Show.

Only 250 tickets will be sold. Tickets cost $50 each, and one meal is included with each ticket. Additional meal tickets are available for $20. Tickets can be purchased at the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce at 161 W. Water St. or from any board member. RSVP for the dinner by May 3.

First place wins $2,500; second place wins $750; and third place wins $250. The first ticket drawn wins $100, and $50 prizes will be awarded to every 25th ticket drawn. The event will include games, sideboards and a Chinese auction.

Local residents and businesses can also support the Independence Day Show by sponsoring the Reverse Raffle and/or donating raffle prizes. Supporting the show is important as the cost of fireworks has doubled in the past ten years.

“Our fireworks display relies on community support. Purchasing a raffle ticket ensures that our Oak Harbor fireworks display shines brightly for all to enjoy,” said Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Valerie Winterfield. “We thank you for being a part of our community’s celebration.”
