Baltimore is celebrating the bicentennial of the nation's first monument dedicated to George Washington! The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, on behalf of the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy, is excited to announce "Monumental Bicentennial" and the reopening of Baltimore's iconic Washington Monument on Saturday, July 4, 2015.
The patriotic celebration includes the official re-dedication of the monument and ribbon cutting at 10:45am immediately followed by a festival celebration featuring family-fun, hands-on crafts, old-fashioned games and contests, live music, picnic-style food concessions and activities throughout the neighborhood's businesses and cultural institutions.
