The official start of summer is still about two weeks away, but here in Georgia, it definitely feels like summer has been upon us for months now. With the summer season comes fun times with family, friends, time off for vacation, and many patriotic themed holidays. One such holiday, and probably the most widely celebrated in the United States, is the Fourth of July, or Independence Day.
This is an important celebration for America in that it commemorates the Continental Congress approving the final wording of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, after several grueling days of deliberation. To celebrate this joyous event in our nation’s history, many people often have parades or fireworks displays and Jackson is no exception. There will be a fun fireworks display on July 4th when it gets dark (weather permitting), and it will be fun for the whole family.
