The chair tradition in Catonsville’s Fourth of July celebration
What’s in a chair? They’ve got four legs (usually), a flat surface, perhaps a back, maybe a cushion if you’re lucky. But in Catonsville around the Fourth of July, a chair is so much more: it’s a stake-out spot for the beloved Independence Day parade along Frederick Road. Each year hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of chairs are set up on the parade route, often days and weeks in advance. Baltimore Sun Media Group video intern Anastasia Champ takes a look into the tradition of Catonsville’s Independence Day in the video below.
