Independence Day in Downtown Arlington - Photo Gallery

Ten's of thousands gathered over the weekend to show their patriotism and celebrate the Fourth of July in Downtown Arlington! Fireworks lit up the sky on the evening of July 3rd, then the very next morning the streets filled with folks to watch the parade floats and all their festive riders.

July 4th parade

The theme for this year was truly appropriate - "E Pluribus Unum", a latin phrase meaning "Out of many, one". So many great organizations came together from around Arlington and DFW abroad to make one great parade!
