Great choice of Fourth of July events in West County! 
Parades, sports, music, great food and fireworks  
We're lucky in West County to have a variety of great ways to celebrate the 4th of July, from parades to music festivals to BBQ's.

As many of us work extra hard today to make our country truly  " indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, " this is a meaningful time to honor our birth as an independent democracy. 

Adopted on July 4, 1776, the  Declaration of Independence says in part:   We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Celebrating the 4th is a way to honor these important sentiments of our founders. 

Take a look at this list of events. I hope to see you out there!
