Fireworks are illegal in the county -- even sparklers. So-called snap pops, snakes, and party poppers are the only legal items. Those caught lighting the illegal fireworks can receive fines of up to $1,000.

But there will two places where residents can watch professional displays for July 4. One takes place at the Soccerplex at the South Germantown Recreational Park. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will also play at that event, nicknamed Germantown Glory, which starts at 6 p.m. The fireworks start at 9:15 p.m.

The Mid-County Sparkles display, held at Einstein High School in Kensington, also starts at 9:15 p.m. That event features at concert by Bobby and the Believers at 7:30 p.m.
