Fireworks Highlight 2020 Events at The District Wharf
The District Wharf has released its annual calendar of mostly free events for 2020 and once again our calendars will be packed with live music, parades, cultural gatherings, and of course, fireworks! There are twenty-four separate events of which some are repeated weekly or monthly, such as the Wednesday outdoor concert series in the summer.
Fireworks are alway a big draw for fans of The Wharf and they will be treated to four scheduled events with fireworks at the Wharf this year including Mardi Gras at The Wharf (Feb. 22), the annual Cherry Blossom Festival – Blossom Blast (April 4), Pride on the Pier (June 13), and the District’s Holiday Boat Parade (Dec. 5). Bonus fireworks can also be seen from the Wharf on July 4th even though it is not technically a Wharf event.
Other highlights to put on your calendars include Black History Month & Cultural Program on Feb. 6, the Wharf’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration on March 14th, the popular Running of the Chihuahuas on May 2nd, and Shark Bites on July 25th.
The outdoor free summer concert series is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 3rd and continue weekly until August 26th. The concerts are held on the Wharf Floating Stage located near Transit Pier. A calendar of music acts will be released later.
