America's Independence Day - Fourth of July.

In the United States, Independence Day (commonly known as "the Fourth of July", "July 4th" or "America Day") is a federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, beer, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Fireworks have been associated with the Fourth of July since 1777.

read more about it in the wiki which explains history, interesting facts and how we celebrate this day.

This year because of the drought many cities are having laser light shows instead of fireworks. They hope to prevent any major fires this way. If this catches on laser light shows may replace fireworks altogether thus saving money, but still giving the public a demonstration and sense of civic pride.
