Havre de Grace

catch of the day fish (2)If just one night of celebrating July 4th isn’t enough or you—or if what you really want is an excuse to get outside the city limits for a day, Havre de Grace might be your ideal destination this week. Firstly, they’re holding their fireworks display on Saturday night, rather than Friday, so you can easily see both Havre de Grace’s display and Baltimore’s. Secondly, they’re holding a free carnival all week long complete with a parade, rides, live music, and more. And with Havre de Grace’s rich revolutionary history, it’s the perfect setting for an Independence Day celebration.

Havre de Grace’s annual Independence Day celebration is set on the historical gem of Tydings Memorial Park—right up against the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a popular spot for boaters to dock and take in the holiday festivities, though plenty of revelers arrive by land as well. Don’t miss the big parade on Saturday, July 5th, or the many, many carnival rides that are part of the American definition of summer.

Havre de Grace’s Independence Day Celebration runs every day through Saturday, July 5th. Events and times vary. For details and more information, visit
