July 4th Celebration/ Fireworks

Hello, Thinking about visiting Washington DC for the fourth of July fireworks in a couple of weeks. Do they still have a lot of events leading up to the fireworks show? Thanks, Art

That's putting it lightly! :)

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is right there on the Mall, there's a parade down Consitution Avenue during the day, a big concert at the Capitol Grounds in the evening, and usually entertainment at the Sylvan Theater on the Washington Monument grounds.

Especially if you have kids with you, the National Archives usually has some cool stuff going on, you can google their website and check. And if all else fails, the musuems along the Mall remain open...
