The Fourth of July is a time for hotdogs, red-and-white checkered tablecloths, grilling, and of course, fireworks. A holiday that knows no political party, where Republicans and Democrats can reach across the aisle not to talk politics, but to simply pass the ketchup.

Feds took to Twitter and Flickr to express their patriotism and American spirit, posting photos of fireworks and Independence Day activities in Washington. In what has been a busy time in the nation’s capital these past few weeks, July 4 was a time for Washingtonians to relax and enjoy a tall glass of sweet tea.

Former President Bill Clinton even got a little nostalgic over Twitter, and posted a throwback picture of Nelson Mandela and himself on Independence Day 20 years ago.
