The Fourth of July has been celebrated since 1777, but it became an official holiday in 1941. This tradition also involves a beautiful show of fireworks. That year, the Pennsylvania Evening Post reported, “At night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with thirteen rockets) on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.”

Moreover, Independence Day is associated with parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies as well.
