America's independence from British rule is celebrated every year, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Although the holiday is a great way to kick off the summer, especially when the 4th falls on the weekend, hopfully the history is not lost on this day of fun.
This year promises to be a blowout at Charleston's Haddad Riverfront Park. The city is eager to put on a good show this year, and the newly renovated park is the perfect setting for an all day celebration. This evening view catches Charleston's fireworks show over the Kanawha River.
The birth of America is celebrated with parades, picnics, concerts and political ceremonies, all topped off with a local fireworks display. What's on your party menu? Americans enjoys a wide variety of ethnic foods. Some of the more common menu items include fried chicken, roasted corn on the cob, potato salad, barbecued anything, and ever popular, hot dogs and hamburgers. Satisfying the sweet tooth is always easy with America's favorites, watermelon, apple crisp, pecan pie or orange dream cake.
