Washington Celebrates Independence Day (in photos)
Thousands turned out in Washington, D.C., to celebrate our nation's birthday. Some of the main events included a fireworks display over the National Mall, the National Independence Day Parade, a Fife and Drum Corps Performance on Constitution Avenue and a historic reading of the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives. The U.S. Capitol also hosted the nationally televised Capitol Fourth Concert.
