Do you Celebrate 4th of July Independence Day?
4th of July, 1776 is an historical achievement for all Americans gaining independence from British rule. I hope all US citizens will be celebrating this with great pleasure and enjoyment just as we Indians celebrate our Independence Day on 15th August. So, how do you celebrate it?
The town in which I live is quite small (population is about 6,000). It is very quaint, quiet and friendly. It was the first town established (incorporated) in the State of Washington.
The town closes the main street to car traffic and there is a parade--boy and girl scouts, high school and military marching bands, people driving vintage autos, kids on bicycles--just about anyone can be a part of the parade. It's a little bit hokey, but full of nostalgia. I'd like to think that the place I live is a little bit like what America was years ago. We know our neighbors, feel safe, there is no crime.
Anyhow, after the parade, there are vendors selling crafts and foods. The soda shop is open for business. There is usually entertainment--singing groups, bands, jugglers, etc. At 10pm there are fireworks by the Town on Puget Sound.
It is great to be a part of such towns where everybody knows all others and celebrate events in a friendly atmosphere. It is like a big family. I love such atmosphere. You are lucky to be a part of them. Thanks for sharing this wonderful information.
Venkatachari - I want to thank you for inquiring about our national holiday. That was very kind and thoughtful of you.
