It’s almost the 4th of July, and we know that the big cookouts, crafts, and celebrations can get expensive. If you’re looking for some fast and thrifty 4th of July projects and recipes, you have come to the right place!
4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I can remember going and getting takeout with my family and parking across the street from my grandparent’s house to watch the fireworks each year. We never did anything fancy or expensive, but those are some of my best memories. You can create your own 4th of July memories with your family without breaking the bank, as well!
If you’re planning on making 4th of July crafts with friends or children, Pinterest has all sorts of ideas (when has Pinterest ever failed us?)! I’ve found some of my favorites here, here, and here. Those sites can help you make anything 4th of July-related, from Q-tip fireworks to festive wreaths for your front door!
If you’re like me, and love to carry the red, white, and blue theme onto the foods you make, this site has some great festive recipes for your cookout! Who can say no to chocolate and sprinkle-covered strawberries? (No one, that’s who.)
If you’re in Rome for the 4th of July, there are lots of events on the schedule! The Color Me Free 5K will begin at Ridge Ferry Park at 6 p.m. This race is a fun run, which means it’s not timed and participants can walk, run, or even cartwheel along the 3.1 mile course! It’s a great race for first time runners and even families! At various stations throughout the race, participants will be doused with color, in hopes that, by the end, you will be covered in fun, colorful powder!
After the race, there will be a concert until the fireworks show begins at dark. It will be a fun time for all ages and will definitely keep you from spending lots of money on entertaining! Get more information about Rome’s 4th of July events here.
Have a very happy 4th of July from everyone at NWGACU!
