Fireworks will light up the Kent Narrows sky July 2nd as Queen Anne’s County government and local businesses join forces and funds to create an Independence Day Celebration which includes family fun, food, and of course – the fireworks. The rain-date for fireworks only is July 3rd.
Festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. on the waterfront grounds of Chesapeake Exploration Center, located on the northwest side of Kent Narrows off Piney Narrows Road. Enjoy music by the U.S. Naval Academy Band, and local D.J. Chad Marshall, face painting, kids’ rides and balloon artists. Local non-profit groups will sell treats such as hot dogs, hamburgers, pit pork and beef, popcorn, funnel cakes, and other festival food and drinks.
The up close and personal view of the fireworks display begins at 9:20 p.m. There is no charge for admission to the event, and parking is also free; however, some fees may apply for children’s rides. Blankets and lawn chairs are recommended for prime fireworks-viewing comfort.
Parking for the event will be at the old Kent Narrows Factory Outlets and all Kent Narrows public-parking areas. A shuttle will be provided throughout the Kent Narrows for those who are unable to walk to the grounds.
