It’s Friday and the beginning of one of the biggest holiday celebrations in the United States…the 4th of July!!
The celebration starts today with many fairs around the country…think traditional favorites like carnival rides, a circus, farm animals, and games, as well as a concert and spectacular fireworks. For others the celebration might be a family/neighborhood BBQ. Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Lemonade. I am already hungry!!
A few tweets have placed Clay Aiken in NC. There are lots of choices he has for celebrating the day…two suggestions:
The North Carolina Symphony will celebrate at the Town of Cary’s free Independence Day concert that is a salute to the Red, White and Blue. A Triangle tradition, the concert will feature patriotic favorites and high-spirited classics to honor the USA on its birthday. It will be held at the Koka Booth Amphitheater…yes, Clay knows the site pretty well…
Downtown Raleigh will host the city’s Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. The Independence Day Celebration will include live music, beer/wine tent, kids rides and games, Circus Maximus, street performers, eating contests, food and art vendors, picnic on Fayetteville St. and much more! Fireworks will light up the sky over the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts starting around 9:30pm.
However Clay celebrates, I bet he has a fabulous holiday!
Last year, Clay celebrated the holiday by marching in a few community parades.
Back in 2007, Clay was the featured act at the 4th of July concert outside of Dallas, in Frisco, Texas. The following video is just a bit of this fun concert.
How are you celebrating the holiday?
Traditionally, the Family BBQ, and later Fireworks! Clay is probably doing the same with his family and friends! Probably, spending quality time with his son, too! Going to a parade and enjoying fireworks in the evening!
Happy Fourth of July to all, especially to you, musicfan!
Oh my but that was fun!! I on the other hand will be working all weekend. 🙁 I'm going to make the best of it and a good deal of that is because I come here every morning!!!
That concert in Dallas (Frisco) was the first Clay concert I ever got to see and it was fantastic! I hope to see him again someday. But I hope Clay and everyone has a great 4th of July!
Its fun remembering that concert. I was so excited to spend the evening under the stars with my friends enjoying Clay's antics. Also recalling how Clay performed in front of the Capitol on the 4th of July so many years ago. Have a fun, safe 4th to Clay and all of his fans.
Happy Fourth of July everyone!!! Thanks CANN 🙂
