Hurricane Arthur stayed away (just like I said it would on WRNR on Thursday), the skies cleared, the temperatures dropped, the streets filled with people, and the skies lit up with brilliant colors! Welcome to Independence Day–Annapolis style.
Earlier this morning, we witnessed 39 new citizens take the oath of allegiance at the William Paca House.

Dropped in at City Dock to listen to the USNA Band warm up the crowd for the main event!
