Whether you’re a local of the district or a visitor for the summer, there is no better place to celebrate Independence Day than in Washington, D.C.
Don’t just take our word for it; take a glimpse at all the festivities happening throughout the city on July 4th. Everything from baseball games to the fireworks on the mall, it’s all covered here.
If that’s not enough, WISH is in the spirit this summer to celebrate the festivities to the fullest. Come out with all your friends and join the WISH community on July 4th for our annual Ice Cream Social hosted by Baskin Robins.
After cooling off with a sundae take a short stroll over to the National Mall where there is a free concert happening. This year, after popular demand, John Stamos will be returning to host the show from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. This independence day performers include the Beach Boys, Jimmy Buffet, The Temptations, and the National Symphony Orchestra!
After the concert prepare yourself for a 20-minute long firework extravaganza! While the convenience of the National Mall is always one of the best spots for viewing the fireworks display, D.C.offers several other interesting places to see the fireworks from. If you are one for adventure, be sure to check out the show from the Patomic River Boat Cruise or enjoy the fireworks over cupcakes by the waterfront in Georgetown!
However, you plan to celebrate we can’t wait to hear and see all about it! Don’t forget about our 4th of July photo contest! Best picture celebrating Independence Day in D.C. sent to firstname.lastname@example.org is in for an exceptional prize!
