You feel that? It’s the anticipation of the Independence Day National Fireworks! One of the greatest things about living in DC is getting to see the fireworks fly against a backdrop of national monuments, and it’s easily one of my favorite yearly events. Over the years I’ve imparted my knowledge of the event to help improve our readers’ experience. You can get some advice on what to expect; some great viewing locations around the area; and even some photo advice for taking your own firework images.
I have very little new to add this year, so just read (or reread) my posts from years past. I highly encourage everyone to go and see the fireworks, so ignore that inner pessimist that’s telling you to “avoid the crowds.” Go forth and celebrate the independence of our country by seeing a small part of it blown up!
And if you’re going out to take photos, get some inspiration from previous firework displays: 2011, 2012, and 2013!
The link to the photo advice doesn’t work :-(
Hmmm, don’t know what’s going on there. Let me consult tech support.
And just like that, it’s working for me. See? You threat with tech support and computers starting getting their stuff together!
The link to “what to expect,” “so you want to see the national fireworks on the mall,” does not work.
They’re working for me; can you try again?
Working now, thank you!
