National Independence Day Celebration

One of the largest Fourth of July celebrations in the country, the capital puts on a grand show to celebrate the nation's birthday. The city celebrates the day with the state's biggest and most impressive annual parade, music concerts, an evening performance by the National Symphony Orchestra on the steps of the Capitol building and one of the country's largest fireworks displays. There are also arts and crafts activities on offer. The official website listed below includes all necessary details for planning attendance to the festival. As one would expect, there is no better place in the US to indulge in an extravaganza of patriotism than Washington D.C. on the Fourth of July.
