The best thing about 4th of July being on a Wednesday is that you get two weekends and a middle of the week day to celebrate. Some of you probably enjoyed your first installment of red, white, and blue merriment this past weekend, some will check out epic fireworks tonight, and some folks are prepping all their patriotic gear for this coming weekend.
If you’re still looking for a few last-minute creative ideas, we’ve rounded up all of our Independence Day posts from the past couple of weeks. Happy 4th of July!
