Ask the Williamsburgers


This week’s question is inspired by this weekend’s festivities – Fourth of July! I decided to ask the residents of Williamsburg, What is your favorite memory or a family tradition for the 4th? Here is what a few had to say:

Cindy Hicks: When I was a little girl, our family would have a picnic at Raystown. I enjoyed swimming and playing with my sister and cousin. Later, we would go watch fireworks. After a day of swimming and playing in the sun, you were so sleepy and the cozy, sleepy feeling was the best.

Jason Eggleston: Sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, looking towards the Washington Monument and watching the bicentennial fireworks.

Jon McClintock: Watching the Beach Boys, America and Three Dog Night at the Washington Monument, and the former concert later from the Capitol steps (1984).

Andrew Dopp Jr.: Spending the day with my family and dad’s birthday, drinking some beer and enjoying a nice fire and fireworks.

Maureen England: Celebrating my son Colin’s birthday and setting off fireworks!

Bethany Stokes: Used to go to my Aunt’s in Martinsburg for a picnic and to watch the fireworks

Marge Troxell: When I was a child, Williamsburg had fireworks over on Town’s Hill. We would sit on the hood of our car at my dad’s garage and watch them. It was awesome!
