On July 6th, 2013, Saturday at 6pm the Edgewood/Joppatowne Independence Day Parade Committee will present the 6th Annual Independence day Parade. It will begin at Shore Drive in Joppatowne, south on Joppa Farm Road to end at Joppatowne High School. Our very own Sherriff Jesse Bane will be the Parade Grand Marshall. Additionally, we will honor our top students of Edgewood and Joppatowne schools as well as have many civic organizations, bands and churches participate.
A Concert in the Park
The Independence Day Committee has arranged for a free concert after the parade to start at 8 pm and run to 9:30 pm. The concert will be held at the far Pavilion in Mariner Point Park in Joppatowne. Music will be provided by the Chesapeake Silver Cornet Brass Band.
This special treat is offered to help us celebrate an important anniversary, 300 years since the town and seaport of Joppa was founded in 1712.
Please carpool or walk, if possible, because parking is limited. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on while listening to the music.
