Fireworks & Celebration Picnics
Nino’s celebrates July 4th with food for your picnics and parties!
Did you know that Americans celebrate July 4th “Independence Day” every year, commemorating the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation? It was the day the Declaration of Independence was signed by the Continental Congress, rolled up and shipped off to King George VII of England.
Before he was even president, John Adams declared the day should be a “great anniversary Festival” and “solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”
The 1777 Congress approved. And Fireworks quickly became an Independence Day tradition!
But, things got a little crazy in the 1800’s, with citizenry setting off fireworks in city neighborhoods, burning people and buildings. Out in the Wild West, if no fireworks were available, dynamite was sometimes used! City ordinances to hold “safe and sane celebrations” popped up, promoting sports, games and concerts, along with city-run fireworks presentations.
And so, we DO celebrate today! With parades and picnics, flying the US flag, the Harbor Freedom Swim, day-long festivals (Laishley & Fishermen’s Village) and many community fireworks presentations!
