Independence Day (4th of July – US)
Celebrating the 231st birthday of the United States of America which was founded on July 4th 1776, with the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The 4th of July is a time for the Red White and Blue. A time for Picnics, Parades and Marching Bands. A time for Beaches, BBQs and “Bombs Bursting in Air.”

So turn up the speakers, pour yourself a cold one, put another “shrimp on the barbie,” and join us for a birthday celebration – Independence Day on the Net - with fun Holiday things for you and your family. We’ve got some history, some patriotic music to enjoy, a fireworks display and Apple Pies to bake. So bring your kids, and tell your friends.

Holiday trivia – Today is also the anniversary of the song – America the Beautiful.

“Amid the fireworks, barbecue and beer that characterize the Fourth of July, let us not forget the most patriotic of songs, the National Anthem.”

So stop by and check out their 16 (!) YouTube performances, good bad and really awful. Which one do you think is the best?
