July Fourth Hacks, Tips & Tricks
Since moving to DC, I have all the more patriotic for our country! I am grateful to live in a land of free, a land with diverse minds and thoughts, a country of cultures and acceptable difference. There is just something about the stars, stripes, and red white and blue! In the District there is a lot of festivity and fun going on July 4th. Following the festivity, there is a beautiful display of fireworks over our nation’s capital and monuments – you likely catch the event each year as it is telecast live. This Fourth of July I wanted to get together some tips, hacks and tricks for creating the perfect 4th of July party. If it’s a neighborhood of 100 or just your small, quaint family in the backyard enjoy these tips to make your Fourth of July memorable, patriotic and full of fun!
