4th of July is chock full of activities that appeal to everyone. parades are so much fun to watch as a family as you cheer from the side watching the fire trucks and red,white, and blue decorated floats pass by. Go up to the lake for a star-spangled barbecue in the afternoon. After everyone has splashed and played all afternoon enjoy luscious white frosted star topped cupcakes. When the sun sets bring your drinks down to the beach front and ooh and ahh over the brilliant firework displays reflected on the water.
