Fire­works re­turn­ing to La Plata fair­grounds for July 4 cel­e­bra­tion

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The Charles County Fair Board an­nounced its an­nual fire­works dis­play will re­turn for In­de­pen­dence Day, be­gin­ning at 5 p.m. July 4 with fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties and more in La Plata.

Af­ter a fire dev­as­tated the grounds in 2013, the Charles County Fair Board made the de­ci­sion to cur­tail the 2015 fire­works dis­play due to the debt in­curred to re­build de­stroyed barns.

“We have worked dili­gently to pay down that debt and get to our new nor­mal,” said Char­lie Gar­diner, Sr., fair board mem­ber, in a press re­lease. “With the help of a very gen­er­ous com­mu­nity and our frugality, we have done well.”

The fair­grounds will open at 5 p.m. July 4 for fam­ily gath­er­ings and pic­nics. There will be pony rides and a glow prod­uct avail­able. Ven­dors will sell food and re­fresh­ments on-site. Fire­works will be­gin at dusk. The rain date is July 5.

Park­ing and ad­mis­sion are free. The fair­grounds are lo­cated at 8440 Fair­ground Road, La Plata. Call 301-932-1234 or go to www. charle­scoun­ty­fair.com.
