Fireworks displays set for Independence Day weekend

The Garrett County Republican

OAKLAND — With COVID-19 putting a damper on many summer events, it’s not holding back a pair of mainstay fireworks displays in Garrett County.

Fire on the Mountain

Fireworks will light up the sky July 4 as the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce presents the annual “Fire on the Mountain” Fireworks Display.

The display is set to begin at dark. The fireworks are launched from the top of the Tubing Park at Wisp Resort. Prime viewing locations include the Scenic Overlook on U.S. 219, Wisp Resort, local businesses in McHenry, and from boats on the lake, particularly around McHenry Cove.

For any location from which you choose to view the fireworks, remember to practice social distancing.

Wisp Resort is the associate sponsor.

Supporting sponsors are Deep Creek Shop n Save; Huey’s Ice Cream; Bear Creek Traders; Perkins Restaurant and McHenry Beverage Shoppe compliments of Hugh Umbel and Ray Shurg; Ledo Pizza, Pasta & Pub; Property Owners’ Association of Deep Creek Lake; and Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales.

The Garrett Community Concert Band and the Garrett Choral Society, under the leadership of husband and wife team Moe and Julie Turrentine, respectively, will join their musical talents again this year to celebrate the birthday of the United States on July 4th. The two groups will present several patriotic numbers under the “big tent” at Garrett College on Independence Day, beginning at 7 p.m. This celebration is hosted by the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival, Garrett College, and other contributors. Admission is free, and guests may picnic on the grounds. Food will be available for sale. The music is being timed to finish just as the first fireworks are shot from the hillside of the Bear Claw Tubing Park at Wisp. Earlier in the day, a celebration will be held in the town of Accident, complete with a parade and other entertainment, and on Sunday, July 3, the annual Broadford Park celebration will be held, with fireworks at dusk. It’s time to celebrate! Photo by John McEwen.
