Virtual Fourth of July!

Updated: Feb 18

Due to the COVID pandemic, many cities and states have canceled their parades, festivals, and firework displays and have discouraged people from gathering in large groups. However, there are still many ways to CELEBRATE while social distancing and following the CDC's Guidelines for preventing the further spread of COVID-19!

5 FUN & CREATIVE WAYS TO CELEBRATE THE FOURTH OF JULY 1. SINGLE SERVING FOOD If you are having a few family members safely over, serve food in single servings (use muffin tins for desserts like a red, white & blue cupcakes). Avoid sharing food, utensils, or drinks! It is the perfect time to use disposable red/white/blue plates and napkins. It is the perfect party to serve single serving bags of chips and snacks! 

2. BRING YOUR OWN SANITIZER  If you are venturing to someone else’s house, the beach, or anywhere on the 4th, then BYOM, BYOHS, and BYOS. Bring your own Mask, Bring your own Hand Sanitizer, and Bring your own Snacks. This is not the time to share! 3. BACKYARD WATER PARTY  Throw on your swimsuit, shades, some sunblock, and blow up that Amazon pool you purchased during Quarantining! Don't have a pool?! Your backyard water hose makes for a great sprinkler to run through. Also, don't forget to bring out some tasty treats---watermelon, lemonade, & strawberry popsicles! 4. WATCH FIREWORKS ONLINE  Watch Bay Area/U.S. Fireworks Safely Online From the Comfort of Your Own Home
