July 4 (Wednesday): 73rd Dundalk Heritage 4th of July Parade. Line up 7:15 am in the Logan Village Shopping Center on Dundalk Ave. The Libertarians will be meeting at the South end of the parking lot just past the last store. We all need to park away from the street side of the parking lot as that section is used to line up the parade. Step off will depend on where they put us in the parade. Our designated location is "White-1-3". If they follow the system from previous years that puts us in the first part of the middle group. They line up Red, White, and Blue. Expect to be done by 10:30 or 11:00. The theme this year is "Freedom is Beautiful". We are looking for ideas that will play on that theme. This year we will have an historic car in our section as we have a volunteer to drive his 1972 Plymouth Roadrunner. Directions: From the south - come over the Key bridge and use the first exit immediately after crossing the bridge. Left at the "T" and follow around to Dundalk Ave exit. Right on Dundalk Ave. Go all the way to the end of the parking lot before you try to turn in. The later you show up, the harder it's going to be to fight the traffic. This parade draws a CROWD! From the north - I-695 to Eastern Ave (toward the city) to Dundalk Ave (left turn) to Logan Village Shopping Center. Please let me know if you are planning to be there. Contact: .
