4th of July - the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain
On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress as an official way to declare the United States’ independence from Great Britain. Every year in the United States still celebrate that independence with parades, festivals, barbecues, fireworks and picnics. Many families, after the fourth of July parades, have family gatherings, picnics, barbeques and parties. On the fourth of July there is much fun to be had by everyone.
Although thousands upon thousands of people visit famous sites to celebrate the Fourth of July, there are many more thousands quietly or maybe not so quietly celebrating at home in Paducah with their loved ones. Whenever there is a parade, the streets are lined with people long before the parade commences. Often, the people in the parade throw candy to the crowd especially to the children. Small children are often hoisted up on the shoulders of their parents, a float with people dressed up to look like the signers of the Declaration of Independence so that they may see better. Often, there are contests, party for best float in the annual parades.
