STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Though many Maryland towns and jurisdictions have canceled their traditional Independence Day festivities, one county has decided the show will go on.

Queen Anne's County will still host a fireworks display, just on a different day with restrictions in place.

Showtime will be at 9 p.m. on July 1 in the Kent Narrows area. Unfortunately other activities normally held before fireworks have been canceled.

Residents heading out to watch are encouraged to do so from their cars. Limited free parking will be available at the old outlets, on Piney Narrows Road. A small number of portable bathrooms will be available, but visitors should bring hand sanitizer just in case.

After 6:30 p.m., Piney Narrows Road, just past the Old Outlets entrance will be blocked. Only residents and businesses beyond that point will be allowed to pass.

Ferry Point Park including the walking bridge and the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitors Center parking lot will be closed to the public from June 30 through July 2.

The county says anyone watching outside should avoid large groups and stay six-feet apart from others not in your party. Masks aren't required to be worn outdoors but are highly encouraged for an event such as this.
