This special 4-day celebration will salute all American soldiers from the American Revolution to the present-day.

The days will be full of exciting things to do including “The Battle of Wettysberg” water balloon challenge, our annual Firecracker 5k Run, and our annual pie eating contest! This year we will offer not one, but two of the Omni Mount Washington’s famous fireworks displays, one Friday evening at the main Hotel and another on Saturday evening at the Bretton Woods Base Lodge!
