Don't Miss the Washington DC 4th of July Celebration
A Patriotic Parade thought the City -Do you consider yourself patriotic? Here's your chance to celebrate the 4th of July in a way that would make George Washington proud. So put on your favorite red, white, and blue outfit and head to our nation's capital for the quintessential Independence Day experience. It all starts with America's National Independence Day Parade, a cavalcade of activity that features marching bands from coast to coast, military units, patriotic floats, and celebs. The event kicks off at 11:45am on the corner of Constitution and 7th NW.
Festivities and Fireworks -Once you leave the parade, head to the U.S. Capitol's West Lawn for "A Capitol Fourth," a 90-minute musical spectacular. There you will find hoards of music lovers cheering on the National Symphony Orchestra beginning at 8pm. The doors open at 3pm, so arrive early to get a good spot. The event will be capped off by a beautiful interpretation of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture." The United States Army Presidential Salute Battery will provide live cannon fire to add to the spectacle. The day always ends with a band, as can be expected. After the concert, The National Mall hosts a very special firework show.
