It’s time for Independence Day, and for many, that means a long weekend full of fun activities like picnics, parades, and fireworks to celebrate the 241st anniversary of our nation’s independence from the British Empire.
It’s a day to celebrate our freedom and reflect on the history of the country we call home. It’s also a perfect time for flowers!

It’s not the 4th of July without the fireworks, and it’s certainly not a proper celebration unless food is involved. Leave the grilling to someone else this year while you sit back and enjoy the festivities knowing that your Gourmet Fruit Basket from Conklyn’s Florist is the hit of the party.
Speaking of food, did you know that about 155 million hot dogs are consumed each year on the 4th of July? That’s enough to stretch from Washington D.C. to L.A. five times! Last year, 70 of those hot dogs were consumed in just 10 minutes by competitive eater Joey Chestnut at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest which is held every year in Coney Island, New York.
