4th of July Louisville KY 2014

Fourth of July in Louisville KYIt’s that time of year again! Can you smell the barbeque yet? It’s hot outside, the pools are open (have you been to Kentucky Kingdom yet?), and the city is preparing itself to light up in a few days. Did you know that the United States did not declare July the 4th as a national holiday until 1941? Or that in 1804, the White House held the first public celebration of Independence Day? There are some ice breakers for you to use while attending your company get together for the 4th. And in case anyone asks, John Adams was the one who thought we should celebrate this day with fireworks: “The day will be most memorable in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Now that you have a little bit of knowledge and history about Independence Day, head over to one of these Louisville area events to let everyone else know!
