This year, many cities and towns will have fireworks again, since the restrictions have been lifted. If you prefer to celebrate at home, you can still enjoy the fireworks show through a live stream. Whether you plan to watch in-person or online, don’t forget to mark down the time in advance so you don’t miss out.
4. Take a Patriotic Road Trip
Take this perfect chance to have a patriotic road trip with your families or friends. Wherever you are, there must be some historical sites or national landmarks nearby, such as a monument, a government building, or a museum where you can learn more about our nation’s heritage.
5. Attend Local Events
During the holiday, many cities and towns will have all kinds of events to celebrate Independence Day such as parades, concerts, or any variety of events. Check out your local news page or Chamber of Commerce to find celebration activities you’re interested in.
“People can celebrate the Fourth of July as long as they take the appropriate precautions,” Dr. Fauci said recently. As the pandemic continues, don’t forget to wear a mask and keep your social distance if you’re going out for celebrations. Stay safe and enjoy the holiday!
