Mayor Craig A. Moe and the Laurel 4th of July Committee have tentatively begun planning for a modified 42nd Annual Independence Day Celebration.

With the lifting of pandemic restrictions from the State, County and City, we are all ready for some fun after the past year and a half.

The 4th of July Committee and the City are working diligently to bring you a celebration this year, which is tentatively set for July 3, 2021.

Funding and committee volunteers are desperately needed, to make this event a success. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please call 301-725-5300 ext. 2109.

Currently, the modified celebration for July 3rd, will include: a Parade at 11:00 am, Car Show at Noon on Mulberry Street, a Flag Raising ceremony, time to be determined, and Fireworks around 9:15pm.

This year, there will be no vendors, music or family games on the field. However, we are asking families in the City of Laurel to plan their own BBQs. The first 15 families that register their backyard family fun with the City, will have a visit from some friends, who will bring goodie bags filled with some 4th of July cheer. To register, please email [email protected]!

Access to the field for fireworks viewing will not be permitted until 7:30pm on July 3rd. Also, NO bookbags or coolers will be allowed on the field, along with NO alcohol and NO pets.

Please note that this celebration is contingent upon any summer pandemic surge that could occur prior to the event, so do your part and take the shot!

More details to come once planning is complete!
