Celebrate July 4th in Bluemont! Social-Distancing Friendly Bell-Ringing

Come join us at noon on Saturday, July 4 to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day. Everyone gets to ring the bell!

We’ll practice social distancing, including with facemasks, hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes, and encouraging everyone to stay at least six feet apart during this outdoor event.

We'll have grab-and-go souvenirs for the kids and the young at heart.

The bell is at the corner of Wilson Blvd and George Mason Blvd (by Fire Station 2), which is also known as Constitution Garden Park. Come ring our community bell!
