The Italian Heritage Festival is Buffalo! It’s a summertime tradition for all to enjoy, so bring the family. Special thanks to all of our dedicated sponsors, vendors and of course you, our guests. You are family, so join us as together we will make this year’s festival our best ever!

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2018 IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Independence Day(United States)

 

Independence Day is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays. Similar to other summer-themed events, Independence Day celebrations often take place outdoors. Independence Day is a federal holiday, so all non-essential federal institutions (such as the postal service and federal courts) are closed on that day. Many politicians make it a point on this day to appear at a public event to praise the nation’s heritage, laws, history, society, and people.

 

Families often celebrate Independence Day by hosting or attending a picnic or barbecue; many take advantage of the day off and, in some years, a long weekend to gather with relatives or friends. Decorations (e.g., streamers, balloons, and clothing) are generally colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades are often held in the morning, before family get-togethers, while fireworks displays occur in the evening after dark at such places as parks, fairgrounds, or town squares.

 

The night before the Fourth was once the focal point of celebrations, marked by raucous gathering often incorporating bonfires as their centerpiece. In New England, towns completed to build towering pyramids, assembled from barrels and casks. They were lit at nightfall to usher in the celebration. The highest were in Salem, Massachusetts, with pyramids composed of as many as forty tiers of barrels. These made the tallest bonfires ever recorded.

 

Independence Day fireworks are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”; “God Bless America”; “America the Beautiful”; “My country. ‘Tis of Thee”; “This Land is Your Land”; “Stars and Stripes Forever”; and, regionally, “Yankee Doodle” in northeastern states and “Dixie” in southern states.

 

Fireworks shows are held in many states, and many fireworks are sold for personal use or as an alternative to a public show. Safety concerns have led some states to ban fireworks or limit the sizes and types allowed. In addition, local and regional weather conditions may dictate whether the sale or use of fireworks in an area will be allowed. Some local or regional fireworks sales are limited or prohibited because of dry weather or other specific concerns. On these occasions, the public may be prohibited from purchasing or discharging fireworks, but professional displays (such as those at the sports event) may still take place if certain safety precautions have been taken.

 

A salute of one gun for each state in the United States called a “salute to the union,” is fired on Independence Day at noon by any capable military base.

 

The first week of July is typically one of the busiest United States travel periods of the year, as many people use what is often a three-day holiday weekend for extended vacation trips.

 

This Independence Day brings forth a new hope to make our tomorrows most beautiful and cherished. The Liberty team wishing everyone a very happy 4th of July!
