Do you already have plans for the 4th of July? If not, there is still plenty of time to decide how you want to commemorate this year’s Independence Day! Celebratory fireworks on the National Mall in DC will begin between 9:00 and 9:15 pm. Keep road and Metro closures as well as security measures in mind when planning your trip into the city. Would you prefer to find a night of fireworks and fun close to home? Numerous local fireworks displays can be found around the area and one may be closer to you than you think! For those who will be out of town for the weekend, don’t fret! You can enjoy another evening of festivities and yes, more fireworks at Oronoco Bay Park in Alexandria on Saturday July 9th. However you choose to celebrate this 4th of July, be safe and have fun!
