Elkton Independence Day celebration goes on despite rain
— Despite the occasionally pouring rain, the town’s Independence Day celebration went on as planned on Monday night.
The festivities were set to kick-off at 5 p.m. in Meadow Park with food vendors and other entertainment. Other holiday activities were slated
to begin at 7 p.m. with the fireworks set to launch at dusk.
Though many nearby towns, including Newark and Middletown in Delaware, cancelled their celebrations planned for Monday night, Elkton forged ahead with many attendees huddling under umbrellas or choosing to watch the show from their cars.
