Food, Fireworks & the Fourth of July

This annual national holiday celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776. A spectacular pyrotechnics show is a popular way we, Americans, celebrate Independence Day. Additionally, we commemorate this holiday with family and friends by typically having a cookout, or barbecue.

In the U.S., barbecues are also popular on special occasions (e.g., family reunions, birthdays, housewarmings, job promotions, retirements, etc.); sporting events (e.g., the Super Bowl); other holidays, such as Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Flag Day and Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “Fifth of May”); and special calendar dates (e.g., First Day of Spring, First Day of Summer, etc.). In some parts of the U.S., where the weather is particularly exceptional, barbecues are popular not only during the spring and summer months, but all year round. However, nothing says barbecue like the 4th of July!

A great barbecue, the 4th of July, and elaborate fireworks go hand in hand; they’re a winning combination! The art of fireworks originated in ancient China. Ever since then, fireworks have been used for celebratory purposes around the world (e.g., New Year’s Eve celebrations, weddings, graduations, etc.). And as the colonists first celebrated the birth of the United States of America and their newfound freedom with fireworks, so do we continue this tradition.

Note: Handling fireworks of any kind (e.g., firecrackers, sparklers, skyrockets, roman candles, helicopter rockets, novelties, etc.) can be very dangerous and illegal in some states. Each of the 50 states and the federal district (Washington D.C.) has their own rules and regulations on pyrotechnics. Check your state’s laws on fireworks. It’s thus best to leave it to the professionals who are authorized in handling pyrotechnics.

For some added entertainment, if your city or town is hosting a professional fireworks display, head on over to the event with your guests after your barbecue event.

Helpful Tip: Provide each of your guests with a map of directions to the professional fireworks show to top off a great barbecue night!
