4 Fun Ideas for Fourth of July

1. Wear Red, White, and Blue! Your easiest outfit is denim (blue), a white t-shirt, and red hat or belt! 

2. Play 4th of July Trivia while you are waiting for the firework show and test yourself on your Revolutionary War knowledge! 

3. Host a BBQ and serve a variety of hot dogs and hamburgers! All beef, chicken, turkey, vegetarian and vote on the most popular! The Founding Fathers made voting a part of the American political system so bring voting into your BBQ! 

4. Eat your dessert in red, white, and blue too! Serve blueberries & strawberries on vanilla ice cream and crush up blue and red rock candy for your “firework” topping! 

 

 

Whether you are staying in your front yard and watching fireworks, going to a firework show, lying poolside all day, KALEO Real Estate Company wishes you a safe and fun 4th of July!
