One of the things I love about Baltimore is that each neighbourhood has a unique character. Even if the neighbourhoods are only blocks apart, they are different. I am house-sitting for friends who live on Baltimore's Inner Harbour, and it's the perfect place to watch the fireworks over the water.
However, it's a tradition that happens earlier in the day that is what I love the most. Residents hold a 4th of July Parade, walking through the streets and the park, with the local fire station's truck leading the way.The fife & drum corps from close-by Fort McHenry also play.All of the children decorate their bikes, scooters and strollers, dress in red, white and blue, and follow along. After the parade, there's a street party.
Much later on, there are amazing fireworks from two locations in the harbour.
Hope you had a great day, regardless of where you were on July 4th!
