Hey All! One of my favorite holidays is coming up this weekend! I just love the Fourth of July, it’s a day spent with great friends, food, fun and my favorite, fireworks! It’s a good thing the Department of Recreation will be having free music and fireworks this year! They always know how to have fun, so get the barbecue started and afterwards come on out for the best part, fireworks!
There will be two Independence Day celebrations on Monday, July 4. Germantown Glory will be held at the SoccerPlex in the South Germantown Recreational Park, 18041 Central Park Circle, Boyds. Mid-County Sparkles will be held at Albert Einstein High School, 11135 Newport Mill Road, Kensington.
Germantown Glory will begin at 6 p.m. with children’s activities hosted by the BlackRock Center for the Arts. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will perform a musical salute to America at 8 p.m., through the sponsorship of Hughes Network Systems and the Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union. Fireworks will begin at approximately 9:15 p.m.
Mid-County Sparkles activities begin at 7:30 p.m. with a concert by Bobby and the Believers. The fireworks display will follow at approximately 9:15 p.m. Since there will be no on-site parking at the school or at adjacent properties, except for handicapped parking, shuttle buses will pick up passengers, beginning at 6:15 p.m., at Westfield Wheaton and the Wheaton Metro Station.
