Montgomery County Will Not Host a July 4 Celebration and Fireworks Display

For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 24, 2021

Montgomery County will not host an Independence Day celebration and fireworks this summer. Due to the uncertainty concerning the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year the County could not guarantee the Germantown Glory and Mid-County Sparkles celebrations would take place and did not establish a contract for the event.  

Montgomery outdoor pools will open from noon to 7 p.m. on July 4.  

Montgomery Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) warns about the danger of fireworks and warns that all fireworks, including sparklers are illegal in Montgomery County. MCFRS has put together a webpage of safety information for residents to safely prepare to celebrate Independence Day.
