Tickets to Fourth of July Events in D.C. -- Washington Nationals, The Lion King -- Available at

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) - Is there a better way to celebrate Independence Day than in the nation's capital? Whether you're a D.C.-area resident or just visiting for the Fourth of July weekend, tickets are listed at for family-friendly entertainment that will help you get in the patriotic spirit.

It's hard to get more American than baseball, and the Washington Nationals will be in the middle of a home stand over the patriotic weekend. The Nationals will be wrapping up a series with the Colorado Rockies on July 2 at Nationals Park. Two days later, on Independence Day, the team will then start a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.

At nearby Kennedy Center Opera House, the family-friendly Broadway musical The Lion King continues its D.C. residency with five shows from July 3-6. The residency -- which began June 17 and ends August 17 -- is the first since the show's nine-week, sold-out engagement in 2008.

Other Fourth of July weekend events include Capitol Steps, an American political satire group performing July 5; Poems and Patriotism: The 200th Birthday of the Star-Spangled Banner, a special celebration of the national anthem on July 3; Side Show, a musical about two twins who go from circus attraction to famous performers, with shows July 3-7; and rapper Juicy J, who performs July 3.
