Bowser Says D.C. Open to Revelers for Fourth of July

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser wants visitors to come to the nation’s capital to celebrate the Fourth of July.

“D.C. is open and ready to welcome back visitors to celebrate the way we came together as a city and as a nation this year,” the mayor said in a statement Tuesday. “We have shown once again that when we come together, there is nothing we can’t do.”

Bowser, who on Friday fully reopened the city and lifted all capacity restrictions, said the District will support the White House in hosting traditional Fourth of July fireworks celebration on the National Mall after clashing with former President Trump’s plans to do so last year amid the pandemic.

President Biden announced he will host essential workers and military families on the South Lawn of the White House to celebrate Independence Day. However, the traditional July 4th parade that takes place on Constitution Avenue NW has been canceled for the second straight year.
