Happy 4th of July

Today we celebrate the 4th of July, our 240th Independence Day. This is a day full of parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, concerts, baseball games, fireworks, family and friends. We celebrate American independence and reflect upon the struggles and sacrifices made by others so that we can enjoy our freedoms today. This fight for freedom is always ongoing and is not limited to a single country.

“My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” – – Thomas Jefferson

As we celebrate here are some performances from Broadway actors across the nation.

Closer to home in Philadelphia, PA from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. – The Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert takes over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
