Today the United States of America celebrates a birthday. Hundreds of thousands of people will wear red, white, and blue clothing, grab a small flag, and watch (or participate in) a parade.
Will there be marching bands? Veterans in straight rows? Candy thrown from a bright float? Clowns? Horses?
Don’t eat too much cotton candy–you want to save room for the hot dogs!
Wear a hat — and sunscreen!
The Mississippi River glides past the arch grounds — the site of St. Louis’ largest July 4th party. Stay until dark. Those barges most likely hold the fireworks!
Comfort Zone, a sweet romance set in St. Louis, features a heroine with her fingers crossed for moderate weather — she wants to enjoy the day with family instead of working to replace A/C units during a holiday.
