Happy 4th of July!

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays because I love celebrating our nation’s birthday, and who doesn’t love a fireworks display!?!?!?  I was just researching which event I wanted to attend and found that there are festivities located all around the area so I thought it would be nice to share with all of you.  There are events included for Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, DC—everywhere that Koons sells cars!
