Cue: ‘God Bless the USA’ by Lee Greenwood. It’s no secret that we at Evie are full of patriotism year-round, but this weekend in particular is special cause for celebration.

The Fourth of July marks not only our appreciation for our country and service members who literally lay down their lives every single day for our freedom, but also the true launch into summer. And is there anything that feels like summer more than a cookout in the backyard with country music blaring and the sight of patriotic fireworks overhead? I think not.

In case you’re still searching for fun activities to do this weekend and ways in which you can celebrate America in all her beauty, we’ve got quite a few ideas (21, to be exact). So grab your cutest USA printed crewneck, start a group text with loved ones close by, and let’s help you plan the most epic, America-loving weekend in honor of the 4th.
