2015 Fireworks Show!

INDEPENDENCE DAY FIREWORKS and PARADE
In Chesapeake City

Friday, July 3, 2015

FIREWORKS-POSTER-for-WEBLThe historic little canal town of Chesapeake City will once again bask in the beauty of an awe-inspiring exploding light show of another stupendous fireworks display over the water. Previous years’ shows have been incredible in their magnitude with the producers outdoing themselves year after year. Last year, however there was a hitch in the display when a fire broke out in the area where the displays are launched and many spectators returned home without seeing many displays. The show did resume later in the night after the small mishap was brought under control. With lessons learned, this year’s show promises to deliver a sight to behold.

To kick off the event, music of the season will be played in concert from the bandstand in Pell Gardens starting at 5:30pm. At 7pm, the hometown Independence Day Parade begins from under the bridge on the South Side of town and marches through the waterfront area.

Vendors with food and drink and those ubiquitous light sticks will be on both the North and South Sides of the canal. In the past, many people would drive onto the levee on the North Side to get the best view of the fireworks which are set off from the hilltop behind the Army Corps of Engineers. Starting this year, however, no vehicles can drive on the North Side levee since it the Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail will be completed by mid-June and is officially closed to all vehicles at all times. People are invited to walk the newly paved levee trail or ride their bicycles to view the show.

Delmarva Power Reminds Customers to Call Before Digging

Know What’s Below; Call Before You Dig

SALISBURY, Md. – April is National Safe Digging Month and staying away from underground utility lines is as easy as 8-1-1. That is the underground utility locating service number to call before you put a shovel into the ground.

Whether you are putting in shrubbery or installing a fence, deck or mailbox, you should call 8-1-1 before each job in order to prevent damage to underground electric and gas lines, avoid fines and repair costs, and keep you, your family and neighbors safe. By law, the underground utility locating service must be called at least two days in advance of any work you plan to do.

The underground utility locating service is free, and simply calling 8-1-1 will bring someone to your home or business to mark all underground utilities so you will be able to dig safely,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president. “Calling 8-1-1 before digging will help you avoid fines and disgruntled neighbors if a hit line cuts off electric or gas service. But, more importantly, knowing where it’s safe to dig will avoid an accident that could result in injury or death.”

Be smart, dig safely and call 8-1-1 before you dig.
