Generally regarded as America’s birthday the Fourth of July is one of the most entertaining – yet sober -- holidays we celebrate.  The music and fireworks remind us WHY WE ARE CELEBRATING.
ON July 4, 1776, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE was adopted by the Continental Congress as an official way to declare the United States’ independence from Great Britain. Every year in the United States, we still celebrate that independence with parades, festivals, barbecues, fireworks and picnics.
As Americans, we celebrate the freedoms we enjoy today because of all the brave souls who came before us who risked their lives and the many who paid with their lives in order that we may enjoy enduring freedom.
So go out and celebrate, but do so with reverance and remembrance.  Here is a schedule and information about local firework displays:
