The night could not have been more perfect. Temps were pleasant. Skies were clear. Fireworks were … well… just wonderful!

Rescheduled Havre de Grace July 4 fireworks were stunning on August 14, 2015!

In this photo you can actually see the barge located offshore between Havre de Grace and Perry Point. It was a beautiful evening and well worth the wait for these amazing fireworks.

The reschedule was a rarity in the many years of the Independence Celebration Committee’s annual July 4 festivities. And although many were disappointed, safety is always the first priority. But the wait for the rescheduled fireworks was worth it for those able to get to the shore on either side of the river! OUTSTANDING!!!

We again thank each and every sponsor, every donation – large and small, each and every volunteer, and all the folks who enjoyed the show! A special thank you to Vulcan Materials for the barge, and the City of Havre de Grace. We appreciate being able to coordinate the fireworks to give a great finale to the opening night of the Havre de Grace Art Show.

Again, thank you EVERYONE! We hope you enjoyed the show!

NOTE: ┬áMost of the following restrictions are around the south end of town and are related to the normal closures, etc during a large event at Tydings Park, such as the 3-day Havre de Grace Art Show. The advantage of this year’s fireworks is that they will be visible along the entire shoreline, making it wonderful for everyone whether you’re at the park for the art show, or at the end of a street near where you live, or your visiting and just head to the water to enjoy!
