From the Mayor’s Office:
“Today, following President Biden’s announcement about Fourth of July fireworks on the National Mall, Mayor Bowser echoed the President’s enthusiasm and called on Americans nationwide to celebrate the holiday in Washington, DC. The announcement comes just days after DC fully reopened, lifting capacity limits as residents and workers continue to be vaccinated and health metrics continue to improve.
“DC is open and ready to welcome back visitors to celebrate the way we came together as a city and as a nation this year. We have shown once again that when we come together, there is nothing we can’t do,” said Mayor Bowser. “We thank President Biden and his team for acting with urgency to get the vaccine to the American people so that we could save lives, get our country open, and celebrate together once again.”
After making incredible progress with getting Americans vaccinated and getting the nation back open for business, President Biden announced today that he will host essential workers and military families on the South Lawn to celebrate the Fourth of July. The District will support the White House in hosting the traditional Fourth of July fireworks celebration on the National Mall.
In addition to the celebrations hosted by the Biden Administration, this year, local DC will also celebrate the return of the Barracks Row and Palisades 4th of July Parades.
In May, Mayor Bowser and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, in partnership with Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, launched the DC SHOP, EAT, PLAY, STAY giveaway to encourage residents and visitors to take advantage of all the District has to offer. Already, 14 people have won and claimed their prizes – ranging in value from $500 to $10,000. Residents of DC, Maryland, and Virginia can still apply and two additional rounds of winners will picked, including multiple grand prize winners who will be awarded $25,000 to host a special event utilizing DC’s amazing venues, hotels, services, entertainment, restaurants, and hospitality providers. Individuals interested in entering and/or hosting an event in DC are reminded that as of June 11, all capacity limits and restrictions have been lifted in Washington, DC.
With all capacity limits and restrictions now lifted in Washington, DC, cultural attractions are back open and hotels currently have capacity for the 4th of July holiday weekend: https://washington.org/”
