TIP: Cooking a delicious 4th of July meal can be time-consuming and expensive, so it might be a good idea to ask your friends and family members to each bring a side or a dessert. This gives you more time to devote to the main dishes, and allows you to try your friends and families' 4th of July favorites!

In addition to the delicious food, it's important to partake in fun activities as a family! Play a classic game like bean bag toss, go watch the fireworks at a local beach or park, or participate in whatever activity your family enjoys the most!

The most important element of a 4th of July barbecue (besides the food, of course!) are the friends and family that we spent the day with. Happy 4th of July from Genially!
