2006 Summer Blast Off Tonight

To the right is a shot of the lawn at last night's A Prairie Home Companion show, which was sold out and broadcast live across the U.S. and Canada. We expect another big crowd tonight for the 2006 Summer Blast Off, which features a free concert by the United States Marine Band followed by fireworks. The gates opened at 7pm and the crowd came pouring in to get their seats. Tonight's show is general admission in-house, as well as on the lawn. The music starts at 8pm and the fireworks follow the band.

[UPDATE: 9:27 PM]
The turnout tonight is amazing. The concert by the U.S. Marine Band ended almost 15 minutes ago and the fireworks will begin in about 5 minutes. The Marine's bus just rolled by and the people seated on the hill outside the Press Office applauded as they drove past. If you're in the Vienna area, look towards Wolf Trap.
