It’s celebration time! America turns 238 on July Fourth. On this special holiday, the region is filled with festive events, concerts, parades and — yes — fireworks!
Once dusk arrives, about 9:15 p.m., the skies will light up with fireworks displays all across the horizon. Some communities will get a head start — one as early as this Saturday. Several will fire up their pyrotechnical wonders on July 3.
In Annapolis, thousands will throng the streets to watch a parade at twilight, followed by a concert at City Dock. Once the sun sets and the sky is dark, the fireworks will dance over the harbor, Spa Creek and the Severn River.
Tom Chepurko, an assistant vice president at First Citizens Bank on Bestgate Road, is the president of the City of Annapolis’ Fourth of July Fireworks Committee. He is one of more than four dozen volunteers and technicians involved in putting on the sky-defying show.
