Free Bowling – Brunswick Bowling facilities across the country are letting families bowl for free on the Fourth. They’re giving away one free game to every person in America every day from July 1 through July 4th.
Denver, Colorado – The Colorado Symphony is putting on a free community concert for the second year in a row. The Independence Eve concert features patriotic favorites and an innovative light show and fireworks display.
Southport, North Carolina – This is known as one of the oldest and largest small-town celebrations. It’s free which is a pretty good deal considering the National 9-11 Flag, which was salvaged from the World Trade Center, will be available for viewing as it makes its stop in North Carolina during a commemorative American journey.
Celebration, Florida – Celebrate the 4th with a flashback to the 80’s in Celebration, Florida. Enjoy an 80’s costume contest, performances by vintage bands and, of course, a fireworks show to wrap up this blast from the past.
Liberty, Kansas – Although there are many communities in America named “Liberty” the one in Kansas claims to be the largest. And that’s one reason why they take their 4th of July celebration so seriously. Enjoy an American car show, parade and fireworks display for free.
Los Angeles, California – There are dozens of fireworks shows coloring the skies over southern California on the 4th of July including the Fireworks Spectacular in the city of Los Alamitos. The patriotic event is held on the Joint Forces Training Base. It’s a great free way to celebrate our freedom.
