The Center will celebrate Independence Day with plenty of patriotic fanfare and fun. Throughout the holiday weekend, visitors can enjoy educational programs, craft activities, live musical performances, and more. Visitors will enjoy the interactive Fourth of July Show, which explores how the holiday has evolved from the very first words of independence to the present day. During the hands-on Flag Etiquette workshop, visitors will discover the history and symbolism behind the U.S. flag, along with proper flag etiquette. Another holiday favorite, the Star Spangled Banner Show, teaches guests the stories of Francis Scott Key, the Battle of Fort McHenry, and the flag that inspired our national anthem.
