Can I bring my drone to this event?
No. Drones of any kind are not allowed. This includes parks, the boardwalk, marina, the bridge or over water due to airshow restrictions and regulations.
Can I bring my Pet? Please leave Fido at home! Dogs and other domestic pets are not allowed on the Louis Mentor boardwalk during Bremerton Bridge Blast. This rule is for the health and safety of all festival-goers and your pet! A crowded boardwalk is a difficult atmosphere for a dog to navigate with all the sights, sounds, and smells! People may not see your pet and accidentally step on him/her, and pet accidents create unsanitary conditions. Questions? Please contact Bremerton Parks & Recreation at 360-473-5305.
