Fun Ideas to Celebrate the 4th of July

Summertime is officially here, and it’s time to break out your red, white, and blue for the Fourth  of July! Independence Day is celebrated every year to commemorate July 4th, 1776, the day the thirteen colonies became independent from Britain and officially became the United States. This holiday is the perfect day to celebrate our country and freedom with barbecues, pool parties, food, and fireworks!
