Montgomery County to Host Two Independence Day Celebrations
It is that time to bring out the red, white and blue, fire up the grill and chow down on yummy picnic food. Again this year, Montgomery County’s Recreation Department will light up the skies with two dynamic fireworks displays on the evening of July 4.

Mid-County Sparkles will take place at Albert Einstein High School located at 11135 Newport Road in Kensington. Both firework displays will begin at approximately 9:15 p.m.
Germantown Glory will kick off at 7 p.m. with a concert by Quiet Fire, a soul, R&B and rock band that covers hits from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
Mid-County Sparkles begins at 7:30 p.m. with a concert by Gringo Jingo performing the best of Santana. Only parking for individuals with disabilities will be available on-site at Einstein High School. Free parking and shuttle service will be provided from Westfield Wheaton.
