Wishing you a safe and happy 4th of July


Happy 4th of July! I hope you are ready for a relaxing and happy holiday. Before heading out to the pool or firing up the grill tomorrow, let me share a few tips for a great holiday:
  • Watching Fireworks: The fireworks on the Mall are scheduled to start around 9:15pm and there are a lot of good places to catch the show here in Our Ward 5. Among the great vantage points are McKinley High School in Eckington; the sidewalks around McMillan reservoir at First Street NW and Michigan Ave NW; the green spaces around Bertie Backus; and Fort Lincoln Park. Also, the Armed Forces Retirement Home is having an event starting at 4pm and ends with a view of the fireworks.
  • Firework Safety: Please be careful if you plan to use fireworks at home and take all necessary safety precautions. The Metropolitan Police Department has a helpful website on firework safety. To report the use or sale of illegal fireworks, contact the DC Fire/EMS Department’s Fire Prevention Division at (202) 727-1600 or (202) 727-1614.
  • Sober Rides - Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) 2017 Independence Day SoberRide program will be offered between 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 4 and 2:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 5, 2017. Check the website for more details and how to participate. You must be 21 or older to use the SoberRide service.
  • Spray Park Hours: DC Department of Parks and Recreation announced that spray parks in the District will be open with longer hours, daily from 9:30am until 8:30pm.
Have a safe, relaxing and happy holiday.
