ẢNH: Các thành phố có truyền thống kỷ niệm lễ Độc Lập 4th of July lớn nhất ở Hoa Kỳ


Granbury, Texas

<strong>Granbury, Texas • </strong>Smalltown Granbury has about 9,000 residents, yet it draws tens of thousands of visitors to its annual 4th of July fireworks display, the big attraction of the Granbury Chamber of Commerce Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration.

Minneapolis, Minnesota 

<strong>Minneapolis, Minnesota • </strong>Minneapolis is a prime 4th of July destination because of the variety of events in and around the city, with fireworks shows throughout the region both big (Minneapolis’ Stone Arch Bridge and Lake Minnetonka) and a little smaller (Powderhorn Lake Park, Gold Medal Park, Shakopee’s Valleyfair amusement park, Mystic Lake).


<strong>Chicago • </strong>The big events — a parade, a concert and fireworks — are all free in Chicago. The twin hearts of the celebration are Grant Park, which hosts the traditional concert of patriotic songs, and the Navy Pier on Lake Michigan, where the 4th will be celebrated with a day-long party, including a beer garden, followed by impressive pyrotechnics over the lake.

Los Angeles, California 

<strong>Los Angeles, California • </strong>Los Angeles has more than its share of opportunities to party over the 4th of July holiday, with beach parties, parades and performances throughout the city and nearby venues. Events range from a day-long block party and free fireworks in downtown L.A., to sky-divers and a parade in Pacific Palisades, to a bodybuilding pageant in Venice Beach.

New Orleans, Louisiana

<strong>New Orleans, Louisiana • </strong>New Orleans flaunts its musical DNA at Louis Armstrong Park with a nine-hour free 4th of July concert, billed as Essence in the Park, with an impressive list of featured acts performing from two stages. The celebration includes vendors, a New Orleans style parade and activities for all ages.

Williamsburg, Virginia 

<strong>Williamsburg, Virginia • </strong>There is an admission charge to visit Colonial Williamsburg, but it offers a unique and fun experience whenever you choose to go. If you are able to book tickets for the holiday, it could be your most memorable 4th of July. In this most famous reproduction of a colonial village, visitors experience the revolutionary spirit through a cast of villagers dressed in period costumes and working at traditional trades and tasks. On the 4th, the living history of Williamsburg is particularly spirited and moving, with Thomas Jefferson strolling through the crowds, pausing to read the Declaration of Independence aloud.

Anchorage, Alaska 

<strong>Anchorage, Alaska • </strong>What makes the 4th of July stand out in Anchorage is the length of the day of celebration. It begins with a community pancake breakfast at 8 a.m., an unusually early start for a holiday party, unless you consider that the sun will have been up since 4:30 a.m. Celebrations stretch out at the other end of the day as well; fireworks require dark skies, and the sun won’t set until 11:30 p.m.

Miami Beach, Florida 

<strong>Miami Beach, Florida • </strong>There are plenty of fun opportunities to celebrate the Fourth in Miami Beach, with pyrotechnics firing from a number of locations: Key Biscayne, Downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Miami Beach and on Ocean Drive over Lummus Park. The most popular is the Fire on the Fourth Festival, celebrated at the North Miami Beach bandshell. The fireworks will launch over the Atlantic Ocean, following the ultimate family beach day. Activities are particularly geared toward children and families — bungee jumping, games, food trucks, rock-climbing and crafts.

Tahoe South, California 

<strong>Tahoe South, California • </strong>This city of around 20,000, which shares a border with Nevada, sits on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. On the 4th of July, the city’s population will swell to over 100,000 for the Lights on the Lake Fireworks, one of the biggest pyrotechnic displays in the country. Part of the fun is finding the perfect spot for watching the show. Since the fireworks are launched from barges on the lake, the view from a boat can hardly be beat, unless you make the effort to climb Mount Tallac for a uniquely breathtaking viewpoint. Beaches, shorefront parks and tourist lodges also host thousands of viewers.

Nashville, Tennessee 

<strong>Nashville, Tennessee • </strong>Last year, a quarter of a million people came to Nashville’s downtown to enjoy a full afternoon’s worth of 4th of July entertainment, topped off by one of the largest fireworks displays in the country. This year, the free concert will be followed by 62,000 shells that will fire for 30 minutes — accompanied by the Nashville Symphony orchestra.

Atlanta, Georgia 

<strong>Atlanta, Georgia • </strong>The 4th of July is celebrated throughout the city and neighboring communities, with several fireworks displays and a range of free concerts, exhibitions, family activities and parties taking place in community parks and other venues throughout the larger metropolitan area. But what sets Atlanta apart on the 4h is its annual AJC Peachtree Road Race.

Washington, D.C.

New York 

<strong>New York • </strong>Not to be outdone by the two cities that most evoke the American Revolution and the Declaration of Independence, New York will host its 4th of July celebration, with millions of people celebrating from the city’s rivers, parks and rooftops. The legendary Macy’s fireworks show, the largest in the country, will fire from the Brooklyn Bridge and four barges on the East River, with many other displays also launching in the area, including in Coney Island, Jersey City, Manhattan’s West Side and Staten Island.


<strong>Philadelphia • </strong>Like Boston, Philadelphia takes its role in America’s independence to heart, making the 4th of July a weeklong celebration, called the Wawa Welcome America festival. Free events include museum days (free or “pay what you wish�), block parties, concerts, outdoor movies, a variety of children’s activities, food events, live performances, a parade and pyrotechnics. There were fireworks over the Delaware River on June 29, and another show on July 1. But the biggest party is on the 4th.

Boston, Massachusetts

<strong>Boston, Massachusetts • </strong>Steeped in Revolutionary War history, no city does Independence Day like Boston. Called Harborfest, Boston’s celebration lasts a week and attracts nearly 3 million visitors every year. The week of events — many of them free — include parades, harbour cruises, ceremonies, tours, live music, exhibitions and a famous “chowderfest.�
