Solomons 4th of July 2014

The Solomons Business Association (SBA) proudly sponsors the annual Solomons Independence Day fireworks display, to be held on Friday, July 4th at approximately 9:15 - 9:30 pm (after dusk). Fireworks will be shot from a barge in the Patuxent River and can be viewed from the Riverwalk. Celebrate our nation's birth, and show your colors all day long!  

This year we honor our local NAVAIR Wounded Warriors with free tours, entertainment, dinners and preferred fireworks viewing.  Thank you for your dedicated service, Warriors!  Thanks for the contributions from these SBA businesses: Calvert Marine Museum, Digital Lightning, Back Creek Bistro, DiGiovanni's, Stoney's Kingfisher, Bistro Belle Maison, Pearl Cafe, Hilton Garden Inn, Tiki Bar, Sail Solomons, Southern Maryland Sailing Association, and Solomons United Methodist Church. 

The Fireworks will be preceeded by activities throughout Solomons, sponsored by individuals and businesses.

- Boat Parade -  watch a glorious parade of decorated boats and crew showing their patriotic colors!  Parade begins at noon, and can be viewed from many waterfront locations in Solomons. See the map below for the boat parade route. Captains - rendezvous start at N38.34018 W76.4599. 

Rain date: Saturday, July 5th. All efforts are made for the display to be held July 4th. If weather factors force a last-minute delay or postponement in order to maintain the safety of the crew and spectators, the fireworks will take place on Saturday, July 5th.

Traffic & Parking: Vehicular traffic on the island will be restricted. Please park in designated areas only;  please respect private property. A pay-per-ride shuttle service by Thomas & Son Transport will operate throughout Solomons for your convenience.
