Thanks to You, It Happens!
Although many people in Harford County think that the traditional July 4 festivities in Bel Air "just happen" or are a function of local government, actually everything is run by an independent, not-for-profit committee: the Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc.
This Committee not only organizes and runs all the events in Bel Air on July 4th but it also must raise the money that it takes to bring the whole day together and celebrate our glorious holiday in fitting style.
We Can't Go It Alone — We Need Your Help
Fortunately, the Committee doesn't go it alone. Each year, dozens - hundreds - of local businesses, organizations, clubs and individuals lend invaluable support to the Bel Air Independence Day festivities by contributing to the Committee.
As a result of the generosity of these and many other local businesses, on every July 4th in Bel Air, about 2,500 adults and children experience the daytime events; over 3,000 participants march in the parade, which is seen by (usually) about 25,000 spectators; and up to 75,000 people view the fireworks. It's a good bang for the buck (so to speak!).
This year, we hope you or your business join thousandds of your friends and local businesses and become a patron of Bel Air's July 4th celebration!
