“On July 4, 2015 we will celebrate the 239th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It’s a special day back home, with fireworks and family barbeques. But it’s just as special– perhaps even more so–for Americans living abroad.”
Ambassador Philip T. Reeker,

U.S. Consul General in Milan

“I love the Fourth of July! Living in New England (Connecticut) we celebrate and remember the essence of the Revolution with parades and celebrating patriotism. I will miss the lobsters and fireworks! And little kids with big smiles on their faces… but I am sure in Milan this year, we will bring that spirit to Italy!”
Dorothy Cann Hamilton,
President of USA Pavilion at Expo 2015 Founder & CEO, International Culinary Center

“Fireworks! Usually on the balcony of a friend’s apartment high above the Hudson River with spectacular views of the fireworks. It’s one long “oooooh”.”
James Biber,
Architect of the USA Pavilion at Expo 2015

“I’m from Evanston, Illinois, and we did it up right every year with a HUGE parade. Then, in the evening, at Northwestern University’s Dyche Stadium, we had entertainment and fireworks. As a U.S. History buff, I learned what it all meant. In fact, eight generations before me, one of my ancestors, James Sage, who had emigrated from England, and who had served in the British Army as a cook, fought for the USA against the British. For many reasons, it’s a holiday with meaning for me.”
Dan Peterson,
Basketball Coach, Sports Commentator and Television Personality

“Beer, BBQ and fireworks! And family, of course.”
Laurel Evans,
Food Writer and Television Host at Un'americana in Cucina

“Every 4th is Sparklers and fireworks, patriotic tunes at symphony on the prairie, my sister’s birthday, cook-outs, and the Star-Spangled Banner.”
Kristen Grove,
Kris and Love - Radio 105
