Upcoming Events at The Netherlands Carillon
Jul 4, 2018 | 5:00 PM | Wednesday
The Netherlands Carillon
The annual 4th of July Fireworks in Washington, DC is one of the most famous displays in the U.S. - watched by millions of Americans on TV.
Seeing the fireworks on the National Mall in Washington, DC is a tremendous experience, but, we prefer to watch them from across the Potomac River in Virginia, at the Netherlands Carillon. The view is just as good and the crowds/parking/traffic are much more manageable.
In the past we’ve asked people to bring blankets and/or chairs and we camp out in the area around the Netherlands Carillon starting at approximately 5:00 pm, with the fireworks beginning after 9:00 pm. Please note, you have to arrive early to get a good seat but the time goes by fast chatting with members of our group.

More details to come as we get closer to July 4 so for now this is a “save the date” type of announcement.
