We normally celebrate the Fourth of July with music, food and fireworks. And this year, despite our different circumstances, we can still enjoy those things (even if some of it is virtual!).
Below find online (and one in-person) celebrations and food specials, so you can plan your day. We’ll be adding events and food deals as they appear, so keep checking back!
