The Catonsville July 4th Committee is honored to be presenting a special tribute to our heroes. On July 4th 2018, we will be presenting a “Blue Salute” to honor our fallen heroes. The “Blue Salute” will consist of a massive all blue fireworks display to open Maryland’s best fireworks show, followed by 30 seconds of silence, to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that our HEREOS made. This year we are honoring Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio who was killed in line of duty and Maryland Army National Guard Staff Sergeant Eddison Hermond, who sacrificed his life to save others during the tragic Ellicott City Floods. We look forward to the communities support, honoring these local heroes that allow us to live free. Following our tribute will be a spectacular display of fireworks.
