Celebrate Fourth of July in a Unique Way

Jun 20, 2020

This year Fourth of July celebrations are going to look and feel different but that doesn’t mean you need to pause on creating spectacular memories. Celebrating can happen in many different ways and this may be the year to create new traditions that can easily be added to future celebrations!

New ways to celebrate

Set off sparklers and play patriotic songs in your front yard

It wouldn’t be Independence Day without the glow and gleam of fireworks. Turn up the classic patriotic tunes and light up the sparklers while celebrating into the night with family or close friends.


Go Boating

Living in Texas Hill and Lake Country there are endless lakes to get out on to celebrate Independence Day. Go paddle boarding, tubing, jet skiing or hang out along the bank. It is the perfect day to get out on the water and take in the amazing blue skies.


Visit a National park

Celebrate the beautiful country we live in at the nearby Lyndon B Johnson National Historic Park, which tells the story of the 36th President starting with his ancestors until he retired at the LBJ Ranch. There are hiking trails and several sight-seeing spots to explore. Check for updates restrictions.



Volunteer at an organization or create a service project at home that will help you connect with your community.

Donate or Share about a cause you believe in

There are so many people in need during this time. Research a cause you believe in and find an organization that is actively using funds to progress in their movement. Facebook has made it simple to donate and share about causes that are close to you, utilize those functions to share with more people.


Create a project for someone else

Almost everyone loves to receive a random gift on their doorstep. Spend the day baking or crafting for someone else. Put together a classic American flag cake with delicious strawberries, blueberries and white frosting or craft thank you cards to give to your neighbors, influential members of the community and first responders.
