July Holidays

One of the most popular July Holidays is Independence Day, or the Fourth of July! It is a day of Parades, having Barbeque's with friends and family, dressing like a flag by wearing the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue, and either watching fireworks, or shooting them off yourselves.  This Popular Holiday is about gaining our independence from England, and we celebrate actually being Americans and what that means!

Crowds line the streets on both side of the 2012 Independence Day Parade held in Truckee, CA. (see my Truckee Travel Guide Website for more info. on this great Ski Town!)

Below you will find our listing of July Holidays and Observances, that fall in the month of July.
