The National Symphony Orchestra played a free Labor Day concert on the lawn in front of the Capitol on Sunday night. After a long day on our feet it sounded like the perfect way to end our day.
Right when we got there it started raining and most people left their spots and hid under the trees. We didn’t have umbrellas and knew we couldn’t avoid getting wet, so we walked right up near the front and got great seats! By the time the rain stopped and the crowd came back, we were completely soaked. It was chilly but fun!
The rain stopped for about an hour and the symphony orchestra played until it started again. It was so cool to hear them play the National Anthem while everyone stood and faced the flag on top of our nation’s capitol with our hands over our hearts. Other highlights included when they played a few John Williams songs, including a Star Wars medley.
Then the downpour resumed, the concert was postponed, and we ran back to the hotel! We were chilled and exhausted and crawled into our warm bed very happily. It was such a great evening.
