PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation announced today that the annual Breezy Point Beach Blast Off event scheduled for Saturday, May 19, from 4:30 p.m. until dark, is cancelled due to the ongoing and predicted inclement weather conditions. As earlier advertised, the rain date will be Saturday, Sept. 15.

“We were all very much looking forward to this annual event and are very disappointed,” said Parks & Recreation Director Shannon Nazzal. “The showers this week are predicted into this weekend and there is no way we can host an outdoor party with a live band and fireworks at this point.”

Breezy Point Beach and Campground is a favorite bay-front park featuring swimming, fishing, picnicking and seasonal and daily camping. When the weather clears, visitors are encouraged to bring the entire family for a fun-filled day at the public beach. Children will enjoy building sand castles, playing on the new playground or finding shark teeth at nearly every glance along the water’s edge. For fishing and crabbing enthusiasts, there is 200-foot fishing pier. It is the perfect getaway for day trips, a weekend away or a week-long escape.
