Independence Day Traditions with Westminster Canterbury Richmond!

And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
-Lee Greenwood

On Independence Day, the United States of America commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, a celebration of freedom. Traditionally, Americans enjoy fireworks, parades, cookouts, music and other patriotic displays. At Westminster Canterbury Richmond, we celebrate in style!

One of the highlights of the year is our Independence Day parade, where residents, employees, and children from our Child Development Center come together to showcase their patriotic finest. Residents craft their own red, white and blue wands to wave during the parade. The parade concludes with a stop in our Sara Belle November Theater, where America’s Sweethearts gave a patriotic performance.

A special July 4 Picnic Buffet overflows with hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecue, corn on the cob, watermelon, beer and all the other favorites! Residents are even able to enjoy some of Richmond’s fireworks displays with the view from our new Roof Terrace.

Enjoy this look at the parade and all the Independence Day spirit!
