WHILE THE Fourth of July celebrates our
country’s independence, it is not the only
holiday observed during July. In fact, you
can celebrate a less well-known holiday
every day: July is National Picnic Month.
Exceptionally easy to observe and self-explanatory, National Picnic Month encourages folks to go outside and enjoy all the
sights and sounds of a warm summer day—
with good food.
There are no speci;c rules or guidelines.
Pick your favorite park, beach or even an
outdoor festival or concert. What you bring
to eat is entirely up to you. Tried-and-true
choices include sandwiches, fried chicken,
fruit bowl, lemonade, chips and dips; you
can even take along a portable grill (or ;nd
a park with permanent grills) for a little
barbecue action with burgers, steaks or hot
dogs. Ice-cold drinks are also a must, especially if it’s a hot day. And don’t forget to
bring plates, cups, napkins and utensils.
You can make this a family event and
make sure everyone brings something to
contribute. Come up with games to play—
;ag football, softball, Frisbee, soccer or even
croquet. For picnickers who don’t like
physical activity, you can bring board games
or even a deck of cards.
Now, select a day and time, send out the
invites, prepare the food and go outside and
enjoy National Picnic Month.
