Put on your best red, white and blue because—believe it or not—Fourth of July weekend is right around the corner. It’s our patriotic duty to celebrate all things Americana, so relax for hours by the pool, chow down on burgers and hot dogs and enjoy the company of family and friends.

But Independence Day wouldn’t be complete without an evening celebration, and that means rolling out a blanket or setting up a lawn chair to watch a local fireworks display.
