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.
