Independence Day, commonly known as the 4th of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States.
I love having the day off and would usually go out to see the fireworks in DC; however, after the hurricane like weather we got and more streets still don’t have their lights working, I’ve decided to spend time with my family and just watch the fireworks on TV and have a grill out.
To all my British friends and subscribers: No hard feelings?! Lol 😉
This was taken inside the Carnival Pride cruise boat. The large American flag was hanging inside the cove where the main elevators were. I really loved the architecture around the flag and thought I’d snap a shot.
When you go to Katsucon this year, Check out the Anime USA booth!
Anime USA will have a con table at Artist Alley Location H8. Their maids and hosts will be there along with a chance to register.
In case you don’t know, Anime USA is a fandom convention for anime, manga and Japanese culture enthusiasts. The event is organized by Anime USA, a non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Virginia, and operated and staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers many from local anime clubs, such as the Northern Virginia Anime Association.
Anime USA’s official tagline is “Of Otaku, By Otaku, For Otaku.”
The convention features Japanese creators of anime and manga, cosplay, voice actors from anime and videogames, artists, vendors and exhibits, panels, workshops, and gaming. Anime USA’s events focus on aspects of anime, manga, video games and Japanese culture.
