LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Several fireworks displays in Maryland will take place on Saturday, with Hurricane Arthur to blame for some local postponements.
Ocean City rescheduled their fireworks celebrations as Hurricane Arthur threatened the East Coast, although it did not have a major impact. The show is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m.
The city of Laurel will also be celebrating Independence Day on Saturday, beginning with a parade at 11 a.m. The fireworks show is scheduled to begin at 9:15 p.m.
Officials say the parade will be streaming live online, the first time this has been offered.

Solomons Island will also be having their fireworks show on Saturday, beginning around 9:15 p.m. The show was postponed due to “strong, gusting winds.”
The fireworks will be shot off from a barge on the Patuxent River and can be viewed from the Riverwalk.
