Whole America celebrated its 240. Anniversary of their Independence Day as usual at the 04 of July. Parades, fireworks and concerts were organized all over the country with high security precautions taken.
The center of the celebrations was the American Congress in Washington. The National Park in front of the Congress Building was filled with thousands of people who celebrated and enjoyed the concerts and fireworks within a heavenly atmosphere.
Americans could bring the weekend and Independence Day together and spend some free time by travelling to close destinations to enjoy both vacation and celebration at once.
13 English colonies in America signed the declaration of independence on 04 July 1776 and broke their connection to the English Monarchy completely. One year before the independence day the War of Independence had started and finished with the Paris Agreement in 1783. Finally, England had recognized the independence.
