4th of July, All Day Long

By Americanart

A. Brockie Stevenson, Fourth of July, 1971

It's Independence Day! Here's hoping you're at the beach, on your way to a parade, or gathered around a grill. Here are a few images to take you through the day that fuel our festive feelings or-we admit it-a little misty thinking about the American dream.

Nothing celebrates summer and the 4th of July quite like an American flag whirligig. Wheee!

Who else is waking up early to snag an amazing spot to watch the parade? (Or perhaps you are up early practicing your wave because you are in the parade?)

Warm up your voices, it's time to sing:

Who is hungry? (Mustard? Ketchup? Onion? Relish? Cream cheese...?)

Someone definitely brought an American flag cake-festooned with blueberries and strawberries-to the picnic, but we're just as happy with a big slice of watermelon.

Well, hello George!

The Statue of Liberty is ready to celebrate. The sun is going down, and you know what that means: almost time for fireworks!

Happy Fourth of July!
