Grilled Food and Flashy Fireworks Await at the 33rd Annual 4th of July Great American Picnic and Fireworks near Willoughby
There's perhaps nothing more American than burgers and hot dogs. The folks who put together the 4th of July Great American Picnic and Fireworks know this. That's why, in its 33rd consecutive year, the festival sticks with what works when it comes to grub: food fresh from the grill. Burgers and hot dogs are both on the menu at this Norfolk bash, along with barbecue and seafood, corn on the cob and watermelon, and, of course, sweet and frosty lemonade.
Make the short trip from Willoughby via car or public transportation (the ferry or water taxi might be a fun treat for your family) to partake in the Independence Day food and festivities. After you've grabbed some burgers, enjoy the sweet sounds emanating from the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command Band. They serve as the prelude to the chorus of fireworks that erupts at 9:30 p.m., signaling the end of another fun 4th of July for your clan.
