4th Of July Events in our area

Clearly, celebrating America’s independence with fireworks is just what we do here in the good old USA.

Undoubtedly, it’s a great day to get together with friends and family!

I mean, it’s a great excuse to enjoy good food and drink, huddle together as the moon rises, and ooooh and ahhhh at the colorful fireworks bursting in the sky.

Also, while celebrating, ya just gotta wear your red, white, and blue!

For this reason, we decided to find the perfect accessories to add to your patriotism!

First, these American Flag Sunglasses are only $16.99 for 3 pairs on Amazon and will totally raise your cool factor.

Second, we also found these patriotic glow sticks (Amazon) for the kiddos to wear once it starts getting dark, so you can still keep an eye on them.

Third, this American Flag Wine Tumbler (Amazon) is perfect for the occasion but doesn’t scream 4th of July, so you can use it year-round and it’s masculine enough for the guys.

But if you really want to scream 4th of July and patriotism, go ahead and get this YETI 30 ounce Dipped Patriotic Flags Tumbler.

Without a doubt, everybody else in your group will have total cup envy!

Lastly, you need a nice tote bag to carry everything in!

This Americana SoHo Collection mesh bag (Amazon) has lots of pockets for all your stuff.
