Though Independence Day will likely look a little different this year, there are many ways to celebrate the holiday from the comfort of home. We’ve put together a few options for you and your family to celebrate the birth of our great nation right here in South Bend.

Watch Fireworks Online: Each year, the spectacular fireworks show held on the West Lawn in Washington D.C. is broadcasted on PBS. The special, “A Capitol Fourth”,usually includes a concert featuring a medley of patriot tunes from famous musicians. This year’s special is still on the schedule, but past years’ displays are available to stream on the PBS website, if the 2020 event does end up being canceled.

Cookout: While hosting a huge shin-dig is off the table this year, you can still have a fun cookout in your South Bend backyard for your family. Grab some hot dogs and hamburgers for the grill, then task your littlest helpers with creating side dishes. Cooking dinner as a family is an excellent bonding experience.

Crafts: In the days leading up to Independence Day, you and your family can collaborate on some fun crafts to keep you entertained and to decorate your home patriotically. From pinwheel hair ties to red, white, and blue slime, there is no end to the opportunities for crafty creativity in honor of America.
