7 Fourth Of July Activities:
|Our Independence Day
This year marks 245 years since the 13 colonies declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. Go beyond the parties and parades and discuss the real history behind our celebrations with the young and old.
Make the weekend a travel adventure by exploring destinations rich in America’s history with landmarks, museums, and commemorated historical sites.
|Display Your Gratitude
Show your patriotism and hang the American flag, create a decorative chalk mural that symbolizes the traditions of the day, and most of all—wear your red, white and blue!
|Pie Baking Contest
Who doesn’t love a piece of good ole’ Apple Pie? Show off your culinary skills and enter local baking contests or have some spirited competition with your friends and family to see who gets the winning bragging rights.
|Lakeside or Backyard Barbecue
Engage in activities that are true to the American spirit such as some of our favorite pastimes—boating, fishing, picnicking at the lake, and backyard cookouts. Enjoy great food and good company while reflecting on the reason for the day.
|Sparklers For All
Have fun creating your very own light show with different colored sparklers. They are a safer alternative if you want to get in on the action.
Yes! It’s the grand finale! There is nothing like an amazing fireworks display to celebrate the 4th of July. Whether you are at a local park enjoying a sky full of brilliant colors with spectacular designs or you are watching from the comfort of home, we can all be thankful to have this day of independence to celebrate our freedoms.
