    When thinking about American summer pastimes, visions of outdoor barbeques, pool time, drive-in movies, and live music come to mind. Starting Memorial Day weekend, the Capital Region’s premier waterfront resort, Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, is debuting many of these iconic American-themed activities as part of its SummerFest program featuring an All-American Celebration presented by Aquafina®.

    From May 25 through September 3, 2018, adults and kids alike will find a variety of nostalgic and new offerings, as well as diverse overnight packages to enhance a getaway at the resort – which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

    The cornerstone festivity of SummerFest is the return of the resort’s popular pre-Independence Day Fireworks and Fun event on June 30. A package guest-only celebration, the event will include live entertainment, kiddie rides, food offerings, an adult-only wine and beer garden, outdoor movie, fireworks show and more.  The Fireworks and Fun package includes:

    • One (1) night accommodations
    • Admission for up to four people to the Fireworks and Fun event
    • Priority viewing of the grand finale fireworks show
    • Complimentary self-parking and resort fee

    The Fireworks and Fun package starts at $259* and is available on June 30 only. To book the package, visit GaylordNational or call 301-965-4000.

    For guests who can’t make it to the resort’s grand June 30 event, there are plenty of other exciting happenings throughout its summer-long SummerFest celebration. Resort guests can enjoy Saturday night silent disco parties; poolside games; live music; an 80’s themed dance party in its rooftop lounge; historic scavenger hunt; a Stogies and Scotch prix-fixe menu; movies in its atrium presented by BUBLY™; beer and burger pairings; seasonal spa treatments; and a majestic new laser light show highlighting the great American tradition of summer road trips with some of America’s favorite tunes presented by BUBLY™.

    The resort also is introducing a new ghost tour, A National Haunting, that will put a spotlight on the haunted history of the Potomac River. Free for overnight guests, the spook-tacular 30-minute interactive walking tour highlights mysterious disappearances and apparitions along the famed waterfront. The tour is available on Fridays and Saturdays.
