    Oh my goodness, BBQ Ribs!  I know this is one of my favorite. But it is America, like apple pie, hotdogs and Hamburgers with coleslaw and baked beans um yummy! I know that's what they se3rve in our home towns during the fourth of July festivals.

    We live in a very small town and its custom to have a festival, where we close down the streets and set up food booths and everyone provides so of their families favorite recipes, from the mayors wife's apple pie to our family's famous rib recipe. its truly a wonderful place to raise kids.

    Oh and the elephant ears corn on cob roasted on a large grill in stadium park on fourth of July is how its done! Lol One of my most favorite holidays in town of the year next to Christmas festival. And yes its all about the food! smile

    My first instinct would be to say hotdogs and hamburgers. Although I bet it is watermelon!

    Every year we have different foods, except for home made vanilla ice cream.  That is my Fourth of July food tradition.

    BBQ ribs on the grill and hamburgers. Serve with potato salad and coleslaw and make a cake for dessert. I wrote a hub a month or so ago with 5 different BBQ sauce recipes, by region. I'd make a BBQ sauce to go along with the ribs and burgers, too.

    Most popular is usually the hot dogs and burgers for the meat eaters.
    I love to serve a fruit basket or fruit kebabs.

    Definitely grilling/barbequing what exactly is included probably varies based on region... (burgers and dogs in new england; brats in the midwest; traditional barbecue ribs, brisket etc. in the south and midwest).  I feel like I often see desserts made w/ strawberries and blueberries a lot too, like those brownie cakes that are designed to look like an American flag.

    With so much to choose from during this food-centric national holiday, why not stick with some sure-fire hits? I'm proposing lemonade, baked beans, watermelon salad, grilled chicken with BBQ sauce, sweet-hot baby back ribs,fried chicken  and potatoe salad with ice cream. Any complaints

    We love to have hamburgers and hot dogs.  For dessert we like have something red, white and blue.  One of our favorites is a Martha Stewart recipe that has ice cream, raspberry sorbet and blueberries.
