ALEXANDRIA, VA. -
The skies over the Potomac River lit up with fireworks and cannon fire July 13 as the City of Alexandria celebrated its 270th birthday at Oronoco Bay Park.

“What an incredible fireworks display,” said Cindy Golubin of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. “In all the years I have been coming here, I think this was the best fireworks display yet.”

The Alexandria Symphony Orchestra highlighted the evening with a performance of Tchaikovsky's “1812 Overture,” with cannon support provided by the Presidential Salute Battery of the 3rd United States Infantry Regiment, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall.
