“Dear PoP,

who the hell is doing fireworks? It is driving me crazy to find out and google searches or websites do not help. From my top floor window I saw a professional fireworks show I think on july 2 or 3, it was right before the july 4th fireworks, and recently I just saw it again, big professional show. From where I am it looks like it is in the National Harbor or Nationals Park areas but neither of their websites say anything about it, I checked both times that I have seen them. Got any idea? Id love to find out so I can know when they will be done so I can watch them : )”

Hmm are they coming from Nationals home games? You know when a home run is hit? Or is it a bigger show than that? Anyone know?

  • Oh, the temptation.

  • The Nationals have fireworks following all Friday night home games.

    • This is right. Beat me to it.

      • And you both beat me to it.

        I can hear the fireworks from inside my apartment, but not see them. It did take me a few weeks to even figure out it was fireworks I was hearing. I thought it was something much more exciting than that.

  • Bang!Zoom! go the fireworks…

  • National Harbor sets them off fairly regularly, too.

    • Yeah, I was there a week and a half ago and they were setting them off. No special occasion as far as I could tell.

  • My bedroom. Sometimes twice a night.

  • Being two blocks away from the stadium, I can confirm–brief fireworks at the beginning of every home game and after after home run, and a fireworks show every Friday night home game, after the game ends.

    It’s driving my dog crazy too. But kind of fun at the same time.

  • Hummm now that I think of it, it was a Friday night both times, good to know! I am up pretty high so I can see them, it is a full scale professional show, just about the same that DC puts off on Independence day. I would guess from the time 9 – 10 PM and the length of the fireworks that it must be the end of game show, not a home run show.

  • Wow. Surprised this didn’t make “What the Helen of Troy?”
