There are few events as effective at bringing people together as 4th of July. Every year men and women, young and old, come together to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence from Britain, but what they are really celebrating is the three F’s: family, friends, and freedom. Entire communities all over the country drop everything for a few days to celebrate the amazing opportunities we are afforded because of the nation we live in.
The truth is, 4th of July may be celebrated with fireworks, barbecue, and patriotic beer cans; but we here at Knudtsen Chevrolet, your go-to dealer of new and used Chevy’s near Post Falls, Idaho, know that the heart of the holiday lies in the sacrifices that our brave men and women in uniform make for us every day. It is because of them that we are allowed to live lives full of passion and fulfillment.
For all of our amazing Couer d’Alene and Post Falls community, if you are looking for fun and exciting ways to live it up this Independence day then look no further. We have crafted this list of 4 of our absolute favorite 4th of July activities that you absolutely must try!
