Bangor, ME — Today, U.S. Senator Susan Collins marched in the 4th of July parade in Bangor. Hundreds of Mainers from the greater Bangor area were in attendance for the day’s festivities, which, in addition to the parade, included a pancake breakfast, a 3K road race, a charity concert, and will conclude with a firework display tonight over the Bangor Waterfront.

“Each Independence Day, we gather to celebrate our great nation and to express our sincere gratitude to the founding generation of Americans who risked everything so that we could live in freedom,” said Senator Collins. “As we come together with family and friends to enjoy parades, fireworks, and festivities, let us also take a moment to reflect on the values that make our country strong, and may we honor the legacy of those who came before us by continuing to work towards a more perfect union for future generations.”

In addition to her participation in the Bangor parade, Senator Collins, along with Senator King, announced last month that the U.S. Navy agreed to send the guided missile destroyer USS Forrest Sherman (DDG-98) to Eastport for their 4th of July celebration today.
