Gonna go back in time…
You don't need 1.21 gigawatts or the power of love or even a date to the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance to have a display or a demonstration on the National Mall. But you might need a permit.
The National Mall hosts more than 4,000 events each year ranging in size and setup for one to over half a million participants. Permits are generally required by regulation for activities that are organized, not considered part of the regular visitation or intended use of a site, or may interfere with normal park operations. Our permits management division issues permits and monitors for activities and events to ensure they occur safely and do not cause damage or limit the ability of other visitors to also use and enjoy these special places.
This week, our permits team is welcoming the DeLorean from "Back to the Future” to the Mall. Check it out today and tomorrow and learn more about National Mall permits at www.nps.gov/nama/planyourvisit/permitsandreservations.htm
