The Town of Vienna will hold its big Fourth of July celebration two days early this year, the second in a row that has required a scheduling change.
The festivities at Yeonas Park (1319 Ross Drive SW) had to be moved up to Sunday, July 2, due to continued staffing shortages in the fireworks industry, the town announced on Monday (May 1).
“We are disappointed that we were again unable to secure a fireworks company for the traditional 4th of July event this year,” Vienna Parks and Recreation Director Leslie Herman said. “While July 2 is not our preferred date, we are excited to contract with Garden State Fireworks to provide the fireworks display for the Town’s Independence Day Celebration.”
Garden State Fireworks was secured for July 4 by the National Park Service to provide its annual pyrotechnic display at the National Mall in D.C., according to Herman.
Held on July 1, 2022, Vienna’s Fourth of July celebration wasn’t the only one moved outside of the official holiday last year, as staff limitations also affected events in Reston, McLean and Fairfax City. The McLean Community Center’s July 2 display ultimately got washed out by rain.
Though it’s taking place a little early again, Vienna’s celebration will feature all of the usual attractions, including live music, kids’ entertainment, and games starting at 4 p.m. Food and drinks will be available from food trucks and a concession stand run by Vienna Little League.
The fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m. and last 20 minutes, launching from adjacent Southside Park.
More information about what’s permitted at the event, parking and street closures can be found on the town’s website.
