Independence Day Fireworks

Wednesday, July 4, 2018 July 4, 2018 The Darcy

Fireworks are launched from the Reflecting Pool area, so it will be especially loud around the Lincoln Memorial. If there are heavy rains, thunderstorms or high winds, the fireworks could be moved to Wednesday. Public access to the Mall begins at 10 a.m. and requires a security screening (go to nps.gov/foju for a list of prohibited items). If you're not watching on the Mall, other favorite viewing spots include the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, West Potomac Park and Cardozo High School. 9:09 to 9:27 p.m. Free.
