No other holiday can provide such a uniquely American experience. Being in the USA on Fourth of July can be wonderful and exciting anywhere in the USA. I hope that you enjoy this day with your host family. Here in the south, experience The Fourth with our southern traditions!!
Here are a couple of things you will want to accomplish:
Follow the Peachtree Road Race
See fireworks. Google closest Fourth of July fireworks to me. There will be HUGE fireworks at NewTown Park in John’s creek, Will’s Park in Alpharetta, Search your city to find the nearest “Fourth of July fireworks” to you!
Hold a sparkler.
Have a picnic with lots of friends.
Sit on a porch decorated with red, white and blue bunting and drink lemonade.
Run in a potato sack race with your host children.
Ask an American Friend what the fourth of July means to them.
On this night with fireworks soaring and families gathering checkered blankets, you will see a sense of pride and respect in their eyes. Pride in a country where being free is everything…… and respect for all those who give themselves to protect that freedom. I hope you enjoy our Fourth of July!
