The flags are flying and the bunting is out on the front porch of Flag House Inn as we get ready to celebrate July 4th in downtown Annapolis Maryland. Guests at Flag House Inn B&B and visitors to Annapolis gather along Main Street and at the city dock area to see our hometown parade go by. The festivities begin about 6 PM and the parade usually ends between 7 and 7:30 PM. If you come for the parade you will see marching bands, Corvettes, conversion vans, Segways, Jazzercise participants, politicians and all the usual mix of groups that make up a local small town parade.
After the parade finishes the USNA band will be at the end of the city dock in Susan Campbell park for a free concert of patriotic music. Bring a chair to sit in and relax while they play by the waterside. Once the band finishes and the sky darkens, about 9:15 PM, the fireworks begin over the harbor. So, get an ice cream from one of the many ice cream shops on Main Street and Dock Street and stay cool for the fun and fireworks.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA!!!
