Step into an American Painting

Just picture it.

Overflowing picnic baskets line blankets while kids run and play, the smell of the grill making everyone hungry on this magical day. A cool breeze swirls as lemonade and soda are pulled from ice-cold coolers and beer gardens pour from flowing kegs. 


The sound of games and rides fill the air, laughter coming from all directions. Couples chat on park benches next to the lake. And suddenly…


The sky seems to emit sparks as explosions are heard overhead, a dazzling spectacle of color filling the air with a wondrous display. People stare in awe and let out ‘oohs” and “ahs” from the grass as the atmosphere buzzes with energy and light shines down from the starry sky. 

One of the most adored American holidays and events is bursting in front of us –
