Make other plans for July 4.
The Town of Elkton, the only Cecil town set to host fireworks on July 4, has cancelled their Independence Day celebration.
"We had over eight inches of rain. The park is in bad shape and won't dry out in time," said Michelle Henson, Administration Office Secretary for the Town of Elkton.
Elkton's fireworks will now be held September 18 during Elkton Fall Fest.
Chesapeake City will also host festivities on Friday, July 3. Events begin at 5 p.m. in Pell Gardens, South Chesapeake City. There will be food, music, and games. The Patriotic Parade begins at 7 p.m. There is no parade registration fee. All are welcome to participate. Fireworks begin at dusk, approximately 9 p.m.
The annual Salute to Cecil County Veterans will be held on July 3 in the North East Town Park.
Events begin at 3 p.m. The evening will conclude with a laser light show set to patriotic music at about 9 p.m.
