Washington, DC’s Independence Day Parade
Washington, DC’s 4th of July Parade features marching bands, military and specialty units, floats and lots of VIP’s! This is a very popular event so we suggest planning to arrive early to get a good spot. The parade starts at 11:45 am and the route goes from 7th to 17th street along Constitution Ave.

A Capitol Fourth Concert
A 4th of July tradition in the nation's capital includes a live concert by the National Symphony Orchestra and several pop artists performing patriotic music on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building. The concert is free and open to the public, no tickets needed! Admittance beings at 3pm and the concert kicks off at 8:00pm

4th of July Fireworks on the National Mall
Of course, no trip to DC for the 4th is complete without watching fireworks on the mall! The fireworks are launched from the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool but can be seen from most vantage points on the mall. The show begins at sundown, usually around 8:30 pm.

We hope you all enjoy your weekend in Washington, DC and Happy 4th everyone!
