On July 4, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. Each year, on the fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.

The United States annually celebrates this momentous occasion with FIREWORKS. There is nothing more exciting than hearing the fireworks echo through the mountains.

The Pennsylvania Great Outdoors region has many opportunities to view fireworks and enjoy the lighting up of the night sky.
