Volunteers were buzzing around Havre de Grace High School—the primary staging area for floats, bands and parade participants.
I will be all over town Sunday, shooting photos and video. In order to provide live updates, we'll use this forum throughout the day.
After a "communication breakdown" last year during the lead-in to the fireworks show—during which I was hospitalized following a collapse at the parade and was unable to provide updates—I felt it necessary to assist the city staff, volunteers and our readers by providing this forum.
We will be using a CoverItLive chat, imbedded in this article post, to provide the best live coverage during the event.
To chime in—reporting a road closure, incident, really cool sight or anything you think others will care about—just comment directly into the chat in the widget above.
You can also chime in via Twitter by simply using this hashtag: #July4HdG
