When you think of summer you think of the 4th of July. This holiday brings about another sun-filled weekend spent with family and friends. While Memorial Day unofficially symbolizes the start of summer, the 4th of July lets us know summer is in full swing! By this time of year: it’s officially the summer season, the weather is quite warm and everyone is out of school.
No matter where you are in the country there is plenty to do in your local neighborhood. If you’re near a theme park, whether big or small, they are sure to have a form of celebration that includes fireworks.
Theme park not in the budget? The good thing about fireworks is that you can enjoy them from anywhere; so, find a spot around the theme park and enjoy the show. Also, if your local park is big enough they are more than likely to have a free celebration and if you can get there early enough, you’ll get to enjoy front row seats to a 4th of July extravaganza.
Of course, we can’t forget to mention those unforgettable 4th of July BBQs. They truly are the best – filled with friends and family, and all of your favorite yard games.
While we think of the 4th of July as another 3-day weekend, we can’t lose sight of why we celebrate this day. Also known as Independence Day, the 4th of July commemorates the United States’ Declaration of Independence over 200 years ago.
So, this 4th of July have a blast with those you cherish and celebrate our independence.
