July 4th & July 5th 2015

Hello! My family and I will be visiting Parkville to see family on July 4th and the morning of July 5th. I am looking for something fun to do while we are there on one of those days. Maybe a parade for the 4th, but not particular. Kids are 5&8. How exactly far away is Parkville from Baltimore? Any info pertaining to this is appreciated!

Baltimore has fireworks at the Inner Harbor, gets crowded though. Pretty sure Towson has a parade, not sure about fireworks. I know Catonsville has a parade and fireworks, I grew up attending both and they're both well done.

Parkville is about a 30 min drive to downtown Baltimore.

If you get really ambitious you could always head to DC; if not, I love the Catonsville parade and the fireworks are usually pretty good.

Yet another option is to see the BSO Star Spangled Spectacular(?) at Oregon Ridge Park. Since its at the park, your kids can run around a bit, once you've staked out your blanket space. The are food trucks, or you can pack a picnic.

Fireworks follow the concert. The big plus is its not as crazy crowded as the inner hsrbor, and always a worthwhile fireworks display.

I think you can get info on both the BSO (Baltimore Synphony Orchestra) and Oregon Ridge's web page.

... i just looked on both the BSO and Oregon Ridge Web sites. The schedule hadn't been confirmed yet, so nothing is posted for the 4th.
