We celebrate the 4th of July as the birth of American Independence every year since 1776.
Since the Revolutionary War, colonists slowly climbed in numbers, desiring complete independence from Great Britain. Today, we celebrate our liberties and traditional patriotism with our loved ones.
In the forms of small to large gatherings of friends, families, and neighbors, we can always rely on our trust red, white, and blue to be worn and hung everywhere we are! The savory food of BBQ and our good ol’ beer in hand. The parades up and down our cities in remembering our nation’s history. But one thing’s for sure, when the night falls, fireworks soar high to light up the night’s sky in our proud colors of red, white, and blue!
On July 4, 1777, Philadelphia began the tradition of setting off fireworks on the 4th of July. It was on this day, it was the first organized celebration of Independence Day. When night came, the grand celebration began and ended with 13-gun salutes to honor the 13 colonies. In between, the Sons of Liberty lit the fireworks to illuminate Boston Common. And since then, we’ve celebrated our independence annually with fireworks, good food, and loving company.
