There are going to be plenty of 4th of July celebrations happening across the Centennial State, this one sounds like a blast. They call it the 'Great American Picnic," and they make sure it lives up to it.

Sure, you can have inflatables, you can have fireworks, a beer garden, and live music, even a softball game; but when you add in a one-of-a-kind bike parade, you've set yourself apart. Get set for a big 'old fashioned' picnic to say, "Happy Birthday, America."

You have to like the way that sounds, the "Great American Picnic;" it conjures up visions of people laughing, kids running around, apple pie, and a 'bobbing for apples' contest. There's no promise of pie or 'bobbing for apples,' but it still sounds great.
