5th Annual 4th of July Celebration

Celebrate the 4th of July!

DC is the perfect place to celebrate the 4th of July. Instead of fighting the crowds at the Mall, view the fireworks from the Armed Forces Retirement Home while enjoying food trucks, fishing, music, and carnival games. There’s a community softball game and a kids’ patriotic bike contest.

So grab your picnic blanket and join the fun! This event is great for people of all ages, and is a highlight for my family every year. We can’t wait to go again this year. Hope to see you there!

Enter at Rock Creek Church Road and Randolph Street, NW. $10 parking donation requested. For more information, visit friendsofsoldiers.org or Facebook/friendsofsoldiers.
