Make your Celebration Sparkle this July 4th

What does the 4th of July mean to you? For us, it’s all about pride in this great country of ours, honoring the birth of American independence. Whether you participate in festivities like fireworks, parades and concerts, or just enjoy neighborhood gatherings and outdoor barbeques, Independence Day is wonderfully nostalgic tradition that officially started in 1870. Break out your flags and grills, America…this mid-summer day of celebration is right around the corner!

NYC has the largest fireworks display in the nation, but don’t discount Washington, D.C. Nashville, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and San Diego for fantastic shows. If you don’t live near one of these best cities to watch fireworks, consider a mini patriotic vacation or throwing your own block party with friends and family.

If you’ll be celebrating Independence Day at home this year, get in the patriotic spirit with Americana decorations or balloons. For cooking up a great feast, make sure you have all the grilling tools you’ll need, and fantastic meats to put on the BBQ.
