What to Do on Independence Day
July Fourth is Now! If you are still wondering what you can do on this year’s Independence Day, keep on reading.
At 9:30 p.m. Monday, three digital clocks stationed on a couple of barges in the Inner Harbor will put into motion a fireworks show that will turn Baltimore’s skies into a kaleidoscopic landscape of colors and shapes, from half-moons to jellyfish.
It will take just two seconds for one of the 1,400 fireworks to zoom 800 feet into the sky and explode. But what often seems like an all-too-brief show takes about 20 hours to design, and five days (and four technicians) to set up.
Reducing Energy Costs and Giving Back
Just in time for Independence Day festivities and increasing summer temperatures, competitive electricity supplier Spark Energy is introducing an electricity pricing plan that allows Pennsylvanians to reduce their electricity costs and give back to wounded veterans.
