2018 Washington D.C. Firework Displays and 4th of July Events

When we talk about the “holiday season” we typically mean the winter holidays, right? Here at our Alexandria VA location, summer is special time too. Particularly around the 4th of July. While our main focus is typically on the fireworks displays and other area events, the birthday of Alexandria is also right around the corner. It’s basically a back-to-back time to enjoy some impressive views. Here’s what you need to know about the 2018 events.

USA/Alexandria Birthday CelebrationHappy 4th of July on American Flag background

As you’re likely aware, the 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year. How inconvenient, right? Even if you can’t stay up too late to attend the cacophony of the events in Washington D.C., our hometown is celebrating both America’s and Alexandria’s birthdays. Did you know our city is turning 269 this year? It’s a touch older than the U.S. A dazzling display of fireworks will be launched along the Potomac waterfront at Oronoco Bay Park. Events begin at 6 p.m. and you can expect the display to launch at dusk.

When it comes to making a day of the 4th of July, this is one of our favorite and we list it every year. After all, you feel like you’ve been transported back in time and can enjoy a full day of celebration and history before viewing the fireworks.

A Capitol Fourth

It’s not that we’re ignoring the biggest event of the area, and the country. It’s that we’re sure you must know it’s an option. If you plan to be directly in Washington D.C. on Independence Day, there is no bigger event. John Stamos is hosting and there will be hundreds of thousands of attendees for the concert and fireworks display.

Is there a smaller fireworks display you feel is worth attending? Share your thoughts with a comment here at the Karen Radley Volkswagen Blog.
