If your 4th of July weekend plans include a cookout, fireworks or a parade, you’ll have plenty of company!
In its annual Fourth of July consumer survey, the National Retail Federation found that 86% of Americans expect to celebrate the holiday this year, with 61% planning to enjoy a barbecue or picnic, 40% looking forward to a night of fireworks and 11% intending to go to a parade.
As your activities for the long weekend evolve, consider enhancing your patriotic spirit with these American-made products:
To set the tone for the weekend, All USA Clothing offers an assortment of red, white and blue clothing and apparel, including t-shirts, socks and a flag tote bag.
To further show your true colors, Valley Forge Flag, a supplier to the U.S. government, carries a variety of American flags.
Since it’s July, you’ll likely be spending some quality time in the sun. Don’t forget that regular applications of sunscreen will help keep your skin healthy, and Babo Botanicals offers an American-made option.
If you’re inclined to make a little noise yourself, check out the various fireworks at American Fireworks. While state regulations restrict the shipping of some products, others may be shipped nationwide.
To be the hit of the cookout, pick up a portable stainless steel All American Grill from General Welding & Fabricating.
From your backyard to the neighborhood park or your in-laws’ deck, a fun Fourth depends heavily on keeping your hot dogs and burgers cool, the coleslaw crisp and the beverages ice cold. Cordova Coolers offers a selection of hard and soft coolers to do just that.
If you’re one of the 14% planning Independence Day travels and some camping is on the docket, consider keeping your campsite illuminated with a rugged lantern from iconic fire starter Zippo.
When that lull in the festivities hits just prior to the fireworks display, keep the fun going with a favorite card game, using an appropriately themed deck from the Bicycle playing card company.
Let’s be honest, celebrating can be hard work. To catch some Zs in comfort and style, The Original Hammock Shop crafts hammocks and island swings for most settings.
Regrettably, Independence Day Weekend 2019 will end, but these American-made goods will help stir the memories of your fun and festive celebration throughout the rest of the summer and for many years to come.
