The program honors the spirit of defense – both of Baltimore in 1814 and of the many natural and historic sites across the nation. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets for a memorable evening! 

Starting at 6:30 p.m. the highlight of the weekend begins with greetings by city officials and state dignitaries, fife and drum music and other performances. There will also be a stirring patriotic concert by the United States Army Field Band. As dusk settles, a symbolic ship-to-shore bombardment will take place as pyrotechnic "bombs" are fired over the fort and cannon of the Presidential Salute Battery thunder a reply. The evening program concludes with the singing of the National Anthem and a 30-minute fireworks display.
