The American Colony Committee’s 53rd Independence Day Celebration is back in business. The massive 4th of July picnic will again feature delicious food, patriotic music, and an explosion of red, white and blue patriotism.

Those Americans with a soft spot for the motherland will make their way to the Cervecería Costa Rica at 9 a.m. on July 4 for children’s games and live music, along with an abundance of beer, soft drinks, hot dogs and sweet treats. The festivities conclude at 1 p.m.
