​​​Enjoy the Beach!

​Birch Bay, Washington



Revelers begin bringing in the New Year early by lighting road flares along the Birch Bay shoreline, and anyone can participate. This is a spectacular sight as the bay becomes a ring of fire, signifying hope for the coming year.

Free flares (donated by Mike Kent, Windemere) will be available at the Birch Bay Visitor's Center at 7900 Birch Bay Drive starting at 5:30 p.m., on a first come, first serve basis and one flare per family. They run out quickly, so it is heartily recommended that bay goers purchase additional flares at:

Pacific Building Supply/True Value
2677 Bell Rd (near Peace Portal Dr), Blaine, WA, (360) 332-5335 

Flares need to be “spikeless” and last 15-30 minutes. Flares are also usually available at marine and auto parts stores.

Happy New Year!

Date: December 31st
Location: Birch Bay shoreline from Birch Bay State Park to Birch Bay Village
Time: 7 PM Flares are lit throughout the Bay from Birch Point to Point Whitehorn
