It is time to start planning your 2019 Fireworks. Where can you enjoy fireworks in the Northern Virginia area?
Fireworks on the National Mall.The celebration in D.C. this year will be different than in years past. The president has plans to speak at the Lincoln Memorial and the fireworks have been relocated to accommodate this change. The fireworks are likely to be spectacular, but be sure to check regularly for revised traffic patterns and restricted areas. Don't assume that your plan from previous years will work in 2019 http://www.nps.gov/foju/fireworks.htm
