Celebrating July 4th in Fort Lauderdale

The United States Independence Day is annually celebrated on the fourth of July. A federal holiday in the US since 1941 but the history and tradition of the celebration goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. 

It was July 2nd, 1776 when the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence. Two days later, on July 4th, delegates of all thirteen colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence. Then, from 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birthday of American independence. Celebrations for July 4th range from large festivities such as fireworks, parades, and concerts to casual get-togethers like barbeques with family, friends, and loved ones. 

While living in wonderful Fort Lauderdale, FL there are so many beautiful places to enjoy a fantastic firework view this Independence Day. Feel the sand between your toes at Fort Lauderdale Beach during the 4th of July Spectacular. Featuring live music, arts and crafts, water slides, games, and more with a firework show at 8:45 pm. 

If you prefer to spend your holiday at your Emera Port Royale home, then that is perfect, too! But we wanted to share some safety tips when using our electric grills. Since grilling and barbecues are classic staples of celebrating July 4th. A few safety tips include keeping cords, plugs, and heating elements from water; making sure everything is off before plugging in; unplugging the grill when off or for cleaning; do not use an electric grill in rain or near combustible or flammable materials. Stay safe and have fun!
