Baltimore City, The Mayor’s Office, Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts and Waterfront Partnership are partnering to bring a little extra sizzle to the end of Summer. On Sunday, September 5th, fireworks will adorn the Inner Harbor at 8:30pm.
However, unlike 4th of July extravaganza’s of the past, this sizzle is not really a gathering – and given the current health situation, it makes more sense this way. There will be no formal program or live music in the Amphitheater this year; instead DJ Michael Joyner will spin tunes remotely and it will be streamed through speakers along the Inner Harbor Promenade. Mercy Medical Center will be in the Amphitheater to offer free COVID vaccinations, and free masks and hand sanitizer will also be available.
But with miles and miles of Harbor Views, waterfront restaurants, and a city full of rooftop decks- we are not short on safe, socially distanced places to watch the fireworks from.
The fireworks will shoot from a barge hauled to the Inner Harbor, providing spectacular views from several public spaces in and around Downtown Baltimore. This is the perfect opportunity to support your favorite Downtown restaurant, or try somewhere new (with a view!).
