 UPDATE: 5:10 pm, July 4th - Due to strong, gusting winds, the Solomons Fireworks are postponed until Saturday, July 5th at 9:15 pm. The excessive winds make maneuvering and anchoring the barges unsafe. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the decision is made for the safety of the public both on land and on the water.

The Solomons Business Associations 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!
