fireworks on July 3rd

I've seen some mention of a "dress rehearsal" for Indepenence Day fireworks on the 3rd. Our vacation ends on the 4th, and we'd love the see the dress rehearsal. Can anyone give me details?

Thanks so much!!

Yes, the dress rehersal is July 3rd, and it is the exact show as the July 4th. The fireworks are not on July 3rd, but there is a plus. The camera actually films the audience on July 3rd and uses this for the promotional advertising spots on "PBS" the night of the 3rd and the day of July 4th.

Our friends were there July 3rd and the next day her friends were calling her saying"We saw you on T.V." so wear your red, white and Blue"outfits and you might be on T.V.

The best thing about July 3rd is that there is no crowd and you can relax and enjoy the show!!!!!

The concert is on the Lawn of the U.S. Capitol where congress meets. There is now a permanent stage located there, which was built a couple of years ago. That is why the production company iw called Capitol Productions. IF you look at the picture of the "MALL" it starts at the capitol.
