DUNDALK — The 2019 Dundalk Independence Day Parade is over, but it’s still the talk of the town. We’ve got the winners in each category, but want to take a minute to thank the community, the Heritage Fair Association and all those who make the Heritage Fair, parade and fireworks display possible.

It’s no small feat, and the entire week of patriotic events centers the community of Dundalk as well as the surrounding area. And the costs — in volunteer hours and actual dollars — are astronomical. If you didn’t lend your time this year, please consider donating to operating costs of the fair, parade and fireworks. Should you wish to donate, please send a check to: Heritage Association of Dundalk at PO Box 4022, Dundalk, MD 21222.
