3 Safe Independence Day Alternatives

The United States is coming up on the first major holiday that typically includes large gatherings of family and friends. Parades, cook-outs, and pool parties are seen as the key to celebrating Independence Day. In 2020, however, many Americans do not have the option to participate in large, crowded events. Revisn suggests several alternatives to having a Fourth of July celebration safely without inviting the whole family over for burgers and beers.

Video conference cookout

If you live alone or just far away from your family, organize a video call with your nearest and dearest. This call can be short and sweet, or last several hours while you all celebrate separately, catch up, play games over the Internet, and enjoy a meal together. We suggest coming up with a menu that everyone can create on their own, and then sharing it together over video! Your family and friends’ unique spins of classic Fourth foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, and more will create a lively discussion. Start the call later in the day so you can enjoy drinks throughout the evening. Dress the part in red, white, and blue, and decorate a spot in your house that you can call from. The options are endless!

Gather with your quaran-team

Living with housemates or your family this Independence Day? Celebrate at home with your quaran-team! Plan a festive barbecue or party where only those in your home are invited. Roll out the slip-and-slide, fire up the grill, and crank the music loud, and handle fireworks safely—always. Order balloons, streamers, tablecloths and more from your favorite retailer to pick up in-store to safely decorate. Just because your party is little more intimate that normal, options are still limitless, and an Independence Day event is luckily still possible.  Skype or Zoom others in to the celebration throughout the day so they can participate digitally!

Enjoy the great outdoors!

Not down for getting rowdy with your folks and friends, digitally or physically? Plan out a relaxing or exhilarating day outdoors. Bike around town or on a nature trail. If you are in Wake County, North Carolina, refer to this list of parks and greenways still open to the public. Plan an independent picnic to celebrate your independence at a local park or in your own backyard. Take a walk around your favorite parts of town and admire the scenery. Just don’t forget to wear a mask and maintain at least six feet of distance between you and your neighbors!
