It’s almost time to ring in the New Year. If you’re looking to say goodbye to 2023 by watching fireworks, there are several places across Maryland where you can take in a dazzling display.

In Baltimore, the New Year’s Eve show will feature drones in addition to fireworks, and in Annapolis, there will be midnight fireworks as well as an earlier family-friendly display. As of now, the weather is expected to be clear on Sunday with a low around 40 degrees.

In addition to fireworks, The Banner has found plenty of other options around Baltimore to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

Of course, if you prefer to stay home, you can watch the ball drop at Times Square in New York on TV or stream it from
