July 4th/Memorial Day

It's time for a star-spangled 4th of July celebration! Show your pride for America with our creative ideas for every aspect of the holiday, from 4th of July recipes and picnic ideas to patriotic crafts for kids, such as star-studded red-white-and-blue banners and other crafts that will transform your home into a holiday haven. Fireworks are the holiday standard, and we've gathered activities for a neighborhood fireworks viewing party. In addition, delightful 4th of July picnic foods mean that you'll be well fed for the city's big fireworks display. Before the holiday, get your home ready with creative 4th of July decorations, including table covers and fabric buntings. July 4th crafts, including fun foam cups for frosty outdoor drinks and flag-theme craft ideas, offer patriotic ways to add to the celebration. On the holiday itself, keep kids entertained with our 4th of July neighborhood parade ideas, complete with ways to deck out your bikes in patriotic style and tips for turning your block into party central. Heading to a 4th of July potluck? We've got that covered, too. This holiday is all about celebrating with family and friends!
