Party Like It’s 1776

As we know, Independence Day is celebrated on July 4 and is known as "the Fourth of July". In the United States, Independence Day “is the anniversary of the publication of the declaration of independence from Great Britain in 1776”. To celebrate, many people display the American flag, attend baseball games, host BBQ’s, and attend firework displays.  But did you know New York has the largest fireworks display, 31 towns have “liberty” in their name, and the chance that the hot dogs and pork sausages consumed on July 4th originated in Iowa is over 25%. To learn more facts, get party ideas or learn about military discounts, please check out the resources below.

At Innovative Educators, we asked our staff what they are doing over the holidays, and our staff will be traveling to visit family, hiking, boating, camping, attending fireworks and simply relaxing.  So, what will you be doing?

Let us know how you are spending the 4th of July holiday!

    I saw one more fun fact today. Americans will spend $6.7 billion on cookouts and other celebrations on the 4th of July, and Americans will shell out $1 billion on beer alone.
