GREAT NEWS!
NO CHESAPEAKE CITY BRIDGE WORRIES FOR THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY WEEKEND

The rockets will once again show their red glare over the C&D Canal from Chesapeake City on July 1st. Town officials have been concerned that the current Route 213 bridge repairs would put a serious damper on their annual holiday event this year. Not so!

The Army Corps of Engineers and their bridge repair contractors will remove their equipment from the Chesapeake City Bridge on Thursday, June 30th and re-install it on Tuesday, July 5th, enabling the bridge to have two open lanes for the Independence Day Holiday Weekend. This is especially good news for Chesapeake City’s traditional Annual Independence Day Celebration and nighttime Fireworks Extravaganza on Friday, July 1st. The bridge has been confined to one lane in alternating directions since Monday, Jun 6th. Railing repairs, replacements and painting will resume after the holiday and continue on till completion in early fall.

Chesapeake City’s Chamber of Commerce hosts a patriotic concert at 5:30pm on Friday night in Pell Gardens, performed by the popular band “Stone’s Throw,” which has played this waterfront holiday venue in years past. There will be food vendors and pushcarts plus light sticks and other like items available for sale on both the north and south sides of the canal – in Pell Gardens area on the South Side and at the base of Lock Street at the C&D Canal Trailhead area on the North Side. In previous years, parking has been allowed on the levees, but it is no longer available along the North Side of Chesapeake City since the new canal-side Trail is permanently closed to all types of vehicular traffic. There will be guided parking on Chesapeake City’s South Side and a volunteer van service from outer parking areas operated by the Chesapeake City Ecumenical Association.

The Fireworks Extravaganza takes place at 9pm and is an awesome sight over the canal waters. The lengthy fireworks show is sponsored by the Town of Chesapeake City, the Chesapeake Inn and Marina, and Schaefers Restaurant and Canal Bar. For boaters, the good news is that high tide is at 8:42pm. On Friday night, July 1st, and again at 9:12am on the morning of July 2nd.

So, gather up the family. Pack up your folding chairs. Bring a blanket or two. Come to the town of historic Chesapeake City and have fun under the stars. Rain date, Saturday, July 2nd.
