Fourth of July in Williamsburg

Fourth of July celebrations are taking place around the region. Honoring Independence Day is an easy task in Virginia and all over Hampton Roads, where the history of the region stands as a constant reminder of the American Revolution. Hopefully, you will have a festive weekend wherever you are.

You are invited to celebrate with us!

Williamsburg – Virginia’s colonial capital offers one of the best imaginable backdrops for an American Independence Day celebration. It lasts all day and into the evening with many special events throughout Colonial Williamsburg’s historic area. Visit www.colonialwilliamsburg.com.

Newport News – Their annual “Stars in the Sky” event downtown is another good one with the U.S. Air Force Heritage Band of America performing popular and patriotic music along with a fireworks display over the James River.

Yorktown – Fireworks will be launched from a barge in the York River, along the Yorktown waterfront. To kick off the evening’s festivities, there is a Sounds of the Liberty Bell Ringing Ceremony.

Please remember and honor the courage and sacrifice of our military men and women, past and present. We express our heartfelt gratitude and are blessed to live in a country marked by freedom and prosperity. May you and your family and friends have a safe and happy Independence Day.
