Celebrate July 4 at Historic Annapolis

Jun 08, 2011 11:36PM ● Published by Anonymous

John W. Guild, President and CEO of Historic Annapolis, will host the event, and trustee John M. Belcher will be the keynote speaker.  The Oath of Allegiance will be administered by an official with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Annapolis High School's NJROTC cadet color guard and the All Children's Chorus of Annapolis will participate in the event, which has become an annual Independence Day tradition.

Seating for the ceremony will be reserved for the new citizens and their invited guests, with limited seating and standing room available for members of the general public.

Following the naturalization ceremony, Historic Annapolis will host its annual Independence Day Celebration at the William Paca House and Garden from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Free activities will include tours of the colonial home, children's patriotic craft-making, demonstrations of Revolutionary War camp life, musical performances by hammered dulcimer artist Maggie Sansone at 11:30 and 1:00, and a public proclamation of the Declaration of Independence at 12:30.

Hogshead at 43 Pinkney Street will also be open to visitors free of charge between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m. on July 4th. Costumed historic interpreters will be on hand to talk about and demonstrate different aspects of life on colonial Maryland's western frontier.

The Historic Annapolis Museum at 99 Main Street will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  There is no admission fee to view the featured exhibit "'The Genteelest Town in North America': Craftsmen of the Annapolis Golden Age," but donations are welcome.
