Independence Fireworks

Saturday, July 2, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:45 pm

Start your Independence Day celebration with a bang on July 2, the day Congress voted to declare independence. Enjoy a patriotic evening filled with dazzling nighttime fireworks, mansion tours, musical performances, and games on George Washington’s beloved estate!

Greet “General and Mrs. Washington” in the historic area before trying your hand at bocce ball. Dust off your dancing shoes for 18th-century dancing demonstrations. Mount Vernon’s colonial artisans will reveal how 18th-century ice cream was made in the days before freezers. Enjoy a performance by Yorktown Fife & Drum and the National Concert Band.
