FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 1629, the Garrett Coalition (GaCo), will be providing parking to view the Fire on the Mountains Fireworks display on July 4 at two locations in the McHenry area. GaCo will provide parking across Rte. 219 from Smiley’s, adjacent to the Garrett County Fairgrounds as in previous years. The second site will be at the Fairgrounds parking lot on the Mosser Road entrance.
Gates will open at 6:00 PM at the Fairgrounds using the Mosser Road entrance. The location across Rte. 219 down from Smiley’s Fun Zone adjacent to the Fairgrounds will open at 6:30 PM. Parking will be $5.00 per vehicle at both locations.
Prior to the start of the fireworks display, GaCo will be selling their old-fashioned fresh squeezed lemonade at the Fairgrounds location and providing hands-on pre-fireworks activities for youngsters and their families, including building and launching a variety of model rockets to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Mission.
