FunFindsBlog: Declaring Our Independence – 4th of July

Independence Day is commonly referred to as the 4th of July.  It’s a federal holiday commemorating the July 4, 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence resulting in the U.S. becoming independent of the Kingdom of Great Britain.  So how do we celebrate this auspicious occasion?

Independence Day is commonly celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies, and various public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.  We suggest you check your local papers and google events in your area to identify fun activities for that date.
