PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Sept. 10, 2018 – The Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation announced today the Breezy Point Beach Send-Off event scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15, from 3:30 p.m. until dark, is cancelled due to the ongoing and predicted inclement weather conditions.

“While we are disappointed to cancel this event for a second time, public safety is our primary concern,” said Parks & Recreation Director Shannon Nazzal. “With the current high waters and a forthcoming storm, an early decision was necessary to inform the public and provide enough lead time for all parties involved to plan and prepare for possible storm conditions.”

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. The site is open through Oct. 31.
