Every year Washington D.C. offers one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country.
At 11:05 a.m., the home plate umpire will yell “Play ball!” It’s a tradition for the Washington Nationals to play at home on July 4, and this year the team faces the New York Mets.
Independence Day Parade
This one-mile parade begins at 11:45 a.m. at the corner of Constitution Avenue NW and 7th St NW. Drawing thousands of spectators annually, the parade focuses on the true meaning of the holiday. Co-hosted by the National Park Service, it features floats, national dignitaries, fife and drum corps, and so much more. The best viewing spot is toward the end of the parade route as it is less crowded.
A Capital Fourth
Known as America’s favorite Independence Day celebration, A Capitol Fourth is shown on the American Forces Network and across the country on PBS. It takes place on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capital, and those who wish to watch the festivities in person can find their seats as early as 3:00 p.m. Hosted by John Stamos, the event features the greatest fireworks display in the country. Before the pyrotechnics light up the sky, an array of performers will take to the stage including The Beach Boys, Trace Adkins, and the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own.”
