Salisbury's Red White and BOOM event Postponed to Tues.

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The annual "Red, White, and Boom" Fourth of July event in Salisbury was postponed Monday due to the weather.

Mike Dunn, the organizer of the event, said Monday morning that after consultation with meteorologists and the National Weather Service, the event needed to be postponed to its rain date, Tuesday July 5. The event, held at the Wicomico County Stadium across the street from the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center, is a free community fireworks display with fun for kids, and lots of food vendors and music, Dunn said.

The times on Tuesday will stay the same: the "gates" and vendors will open at 6:30pm and the fireworks are set to go off around 9:15pm.

Dunn said roughly $40,000 was raised to put on the event for a fifth year. "The goal here all along was to establish free community fireworks that the community could support both uh aesthetically and financially and we've been able to do that so we couldn't be any happier," Dunn said.

Something new to look forward to, Dunn said they will be honoring Blue Star families, families with members serving in the military right now, as well as Gold Star families,  those who have lost a member of the family in service to our country.  "We're going to start our show with a  600 foot blue firework all by itself. Then we're going to count to ten and then we're going to do a 600 foot gold firework all by itself to honor those families and then we'll wait about a minute and we'll get the real show started," Dunn said.

Last year, there were some who felt the lines for food were too long, so this year Dunn said they've added more vendors.
"Hot dogs and and BBQ and homemade ice cream and snow cones," said Dunn. "All the Americana stuff that you're looking for on 4th of July."

For more updates on the event, Dunn suggested to keep checking the Red, White, and BOOM facebook page.
