A Neighborly 4th of July for Georgetown
Whether you attended the reading of the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives or the parade along Constitution Avenue, the hometown parade along MacArthur Boulevard is also a favorite of Georgetowners. Add to that list the Citizens Association of Georgetown's July 4th celebration at Rose Park, kicked by a sidewalk parade of toddlers around the block. The Image Band provided music and opened with a reggae "Star-Spangled Banner." Sprinkles cupcakes, Häagen Dazs ice cream, a pie-eating contest and tug-o-war: what's not to like? Later, many a Georgetown rooftop held groups cheered by the fireworks from the National Mall for America's 235th birthday.
