4th of July Celebrations in Orange County, California

I love all holidays, however the 4th of July is my most favorite family holiday! I love our country! I love America for what it stands for, FREEDOM! I love the RED, WHITE & BLUE. I love to decorate and proudly display our nations flag from our home. I love running our local 5k. I love our local kids parade. I love our beach party. I love all of the friendly (haahahaha, not really) competitions when it comes to the boat ragatas, watermelon eating contest, best float, best decorated home, best costumes…. best you name it contest.

In all honesty, I love getting together with our friends, families and neighbors from sun up to sun down and just spending the day together celebrating the greatest country on Earth. The food is incredible on the 4th of July! Ribs, Lobster, Pulled Pork, Sausages, Pasta Salads, Chicken, Carne Asada, Korean Short Ribs, Macaroni Salad, Chips, Salsa, Guacamole, Desserts oh my goodness and the list goes on and on. I love feeding our law enforcement officers who keep us safe and I know firsthand that they love the 4th and walking the beat to see what type of grub they will be offered from all of us celebrating. The kids always have a great time and the parents enjoy just kicking back.

The fireworks are always top notch and can rival Disneyland’s nightly display of firey magic. There’s no greater feeling than hearing our National Anthem in the background, waving the American Flag, having your kids within arms reach and being cuddled up next to your spouse.

I know that there will be many events nationwide and I couldn’t possibly list all of the incredible gatherings that will be taking place throughout our country. I have chosen to share a few local events happening in Southern California, more specifically Orange County which is where we live.   All events take place on July 4th unless otherwise noted.  From my family to yours may you have a FUN, safe and blessed fourth of July….. God Bless America!
