I am not a fan of the 4th of July, however, I don’t want to deter anyone from having a great time. Whether you are inviting friends over for the big grill party or going to the beach for a swim.
It is a holiday that reminds some of the Declarations of Independence, and that they are in the land of the free. Nonetheless, that is another topic that I don’t want to facilitate any further.
Moreover, many cities like St. Louis, go all out on the 4th. But this year’s VP Fair will be toned down a bit, and the river isn’t even flooded.
According to reports
The sprawling Fair St. Louis event that typically lasts the entire Fourth of July weekend will be a little different this year. The 2023 celebration will only occur on one day. It will include a parade in the morning and fireworks against the backdrop of the Arch that evening.The Fair St. Louis Foundation says that they had a lot of success in 2022. They had a lot of events and want to connect with the community to help grow the event. They are using this year to make plans for a city-wide celebration in the summer of 2024.
The top things to do on July 4th are: 1. Attend a fireworks show 2. Go to a parade 3. Grill food with friends and family 4. Host a backyard picnic 5. Enjoy a day of outdoor activities like swimming, boating, or hiking 6. Visit a local farmers market 7. Watch classic American movies 8. Have a backyard barbecue 9. Play beach volleyball 10. Enjoy a game of baseball or other team sports
What are people eating on the Fourth of July? There is no definitive answer to this question, as different families will likely make different kinds of food. Traditional BBQ favorites such as burgers, hot dogs, and ribs are always popular choices, as are grilled vegetables, salads, and desserts.
What percentage of firework incidents happen on the fourth of July? It is difficult to determine the exact percentage of firework incidents that happen on the Fourth of July as this statistic varies from year to year. According to the United States Fire Administration, in 2018, 63% of reported fireworks related injuries occurred between June 22nd and July 22nd, with 30% of all these injuries occurring on the 4th of July.
