Firework: January 20, 2021

January 23, 2021

“Firework,” written by Katy Perry, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Sandy Wilhelm, and Ester Dean, performed by Katy Perry on the National Mall, Washigton DC, celebrating the inauguration of Joseph Biden as 46th president of the United States. The brief (4-minute) but spectacular pyrotechnic display by Garden State Fireworks and Strictly FX could be seen across the Potomac and heard for 15 miles around.

Fireworks on the National Mall

Fireworks

As usual, we’re walking down to the Mall to see the Independence Day pyrotechnics. This year we’re taking umbrellas as well as water bottles. We’re leaving you these links:

DC Fourth of July Travel Advisory

July 3, 2010

DC Fourth of July Travel Advisory

The Fourth of July will be celebrated in the District of Columbia with the traditional street closings and detours. Travel into and around Washington DC will be slow tomorrow as tourists jam the District to watch fireworks on the National Mall. Be careful who you cut off on the Wilson and Memorial bridges on your way in, though, because no one likes pyrotechnics more than the pistol-packing patrons of Champps sports bars in Northern Virginia.

Virginia’s new law permitting concealed weapons in saloons went into effect Thursday, and patrons of Champps celebrated with Glocks and iced tea. There are good reasons to pack heat in Virginia’s sports bars. You certainly need a semiautomatic firearm at Champps to defend your family against those dangerous Loaded Chips appetizers (cheddar, pepperjack, mozzarella, Asiago cream sauce, bacon, green onions, sour cream).

Have a safe and sane Independence Day.
