St Michaels to Celebrate An Old Fashioned Independence Day

Share

Join the festivities at St. Michaels Museum on Tuesday, July 4 at 10am in Historic St Mary’s Square in St Michaels.  Events begin with a Children’s Parade.  Patriotically dressed entrants are encouraged to bring decked-out bicycles, tricycles, wagons, and pets. Parade participants are asked to arrive at 9:30.

Uncle Sam leads the parade, followed by Maggie, an antique fire engine supplied by the St Michaels Fire Department.  Cars will be re-routed away from the five-block parade route through town.

Back at St. Michaels Museum the program will begin at 11am.  Boy Scouts from Troop 741 will raise the flag and lead the Pledge of Allegiance.  Following a benediction, patriotic and folk songs will be performed by the Royal Oak Musicians.   Guest speaker, Pete Lesher, Chesapeake Maritime Museum Curator, will speak on “Independence and America’s Open Door”.  After we close the program, Magician John Dodge will perform, and the Phillips Wharf Fishmobile will be on hand to show the kids many of the creatures that live in around the bay.  The St Michaels Museum will be open free of charge, and refreshments will be available from the St Michaels Fire Department and the Highland Creamery.
