Alexandria might not be celebrating the city and the country’s birthday with fireworks this year, but there are sill a number of ways to have fun on the fourth of July.
“Even with physical distancing, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a festive Fourth of July in Alexandria,” notes Visit Alexandria, the city’s tourism bureau. “Order special holiday meals like tri-colored tacos and ice cream delivery boxes from Alexandria’s restaurants. Celebrate with deals and happenings, from scavenger hunts to Fourth of July attire for pups, via independent boutiques and attractions.”
Here are some events around Alexandria on Saturday:
- Pork Barrel BBQ is having a fourth of July pig roast from noon to 4 p.m. in its parking lot.
- Potomac Riverboat Company is hosting a fireworks cruise along the Potomac River.
- A historic Alexandria scavenger hunt
As previously reported, the city’s July 11 birthday celebration has been moved online to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.
