7:54 p.m.: St. Mary's CANCELLED—Solomons Still ScheduledThe fireworks displays that were to be held last night at the St. Mary's County Fairgrounds and on Solomons Island were postponed due to heavy rains. Both have been rescheduled for this evening, assuming that rain does not once again interfere.
The St. Mary's County government has announced that their show is scheduled to start at 9:00 p.m. at the county fairgrounds. The Solomons Business Association (SBA) has announced that their show is scheduled to start at sundown. The SBA also announced that this will be the last attempt for this year in the event that rain once again stops the show. The St. Mary's government representative we spoke with did not have any information regarding a subsequent rain date for their show.
The weather service is currently predicting a 60% chance of thunderstorms tonight. You can find the current weather prediction at http://weather.somd.com/.
The fireworks displays in Charles County went off last night without a hitch. Shows we held at Indian Head and at the Charles County Fairgrounds in La Plata. Chesapeake Beach also held a show on Monday night. The Dennis Point Marina in Drayden presented the first display of fireworks in southern Maryland on Saturday night, July 1st.
