For families, there’s fireworks, games and crafts, and for the adult set, there’s beer and… more beer.
This Fourth of July, families can take in a tried-and-true fireworks display in nearly any town or city in NoVA, or they can play holiday-themed games and make patriotic-inspired crafts. For adults flying solo this Fourth, there’s beer and, well, more beer (and some wine). Check out a full list of holiday events below, and find even more things to do right here.
