July 4th, a day full of barbeques, parades, fireworks, baseball games, hot dog eating contests, and spending time with friends and family. While there aren’t any shortages of things to do when celebrating Independence Day, you must include a few of those staples into your gathering. My favorite memories as a kid typically involved eating grilled meat, playing games, and fireworks (both shooting off and watching a show). As I’ve gotten older the scenery may have changed but the activities I enjoy are still the same. Enjoying some good barbeque, playing yard games, watching fireworks, and being around good people will be the plan for this year. In a way, these activities remind me a lot of tailgating. For all the tailgating fanatics out there, a July 4th party is a great excuse to trot out all your tailgating gear. Or, if you’re feeling the patriotic spirit, its an excuse to upgrade to some gear with a little more American pride to it. So with the 4th of July upon us, why not celebrate in style by representing your favorite sports team and showing your love for America as well. Below are some hand-picked, star-spangled awesome options to consider if you’re hosting a July 4th party this year, enjoy!
