A Spectacular Fourth -- in Photos
D.C. is definitely the most patriotic place to celebrate the Fourth of July. This year's Independence Day festivities took place under clear skies and moderate temperatures, all ending with a spectacular fireworks display over our national monuments.
View our photos of the National Independence Day Parade; the ceremonial reading of the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives; the Capitol Fourth Concert on the Capitol West Lawn featuring Frankie Valli, Patti Labelle and the Muppets; and, of course, the Fireworks Extravaganza - just by clicking on the photo icons below.
