Posted:

 OCEAN CITY, Md.- Fireworks have been rescheduled in the town of Ocean City.

Originally planned for July 4, Ocean City officials said its two fireworks displays will now go off on Saturday, July 5 because of potentially bad weather.

One fireworks display will be at Northside Park and the other in the area of N. Division Street and the beach, according to town officials.

At Northside Park, 125th Street and the bay, patriotic music will start at 8 p.m. Fireworks will go off at 9:30 p.m. The U.S. Army Drum Downrange and Baylee Morrison will not perform.

Near N. Division Street, Frankie & the Pack will take the stage a 8 p.m. with fireworks to follow also at 9:30 p.m.

The $50 flat-fee for all day parking in the Inlet Lot will now be applied on July 5, according to town officials.

The fee, which is good for one-entry, will allow visitors to come as early as 5:30 a.m. and stay as late as midnight, without being charged an hourly parking rate. In addition, a late entry fee will be permitted based on availability at 3 p.m. for a fee of $30, also allowing one-entry only.

Once the lot fills, visitors will be encouraged to use neighboring parking lots, including Worcester Street, Somerset Street, Dorchester Street, North Division Street, 4th Street and the West Ocean City Park & Ride. The normal “ticketed” parking operations will return at 12 a.m. on July 6.

Parking is extremely limited at both locations. It is recommended that visitors take the bus. Bus service is $3 ride all day. The West Ocean City Park & Ride on Route 50 is just west of the Route 50 Bridge and offers free parking and $3 ride-all-day shuttle service to downtown. Also, area boaters should note that on the evening of July 5, the span of the Route 50 Bridge will remain closed to marine traffic at the usually scheduled 10:25 p.m. and 10:55 p.m. opening times. The Route 50 Bridge will reopen for boaters at 11:25 p.m. on the evening of July 5.
