We love the fourth of July – it gives us a chance to get together with family, eat good food, have a drink (or two!), and remember how lucky we are to be Americans. Trying to tie all this in to lighting is a stretch, but not impossible.
First of all, there’s all the great light shows, also known as fireworks, that you can attend. The state of Maine actually has a great list of 4th of July activities, including a searchable database of firework displays – check out the link here:
Unfortunately, with the approach of Hurricane Arthur, many events have been re-scheduled. WCSH-TV6 has a great updated list which you might want to double check before you make your plans.
Secondly, we want to shine a light on our home community, Lewiston. We’re pretty proud of the fantastic light show that our small city manages every year, and it’s accompanied by a long list of entertainment. Most importantly, the Liberty Festival gives many non-profits a way to make some much needed cash in the Summer months. Worth a trip to Lewiston:
Lastly, if you get really inspired by the patriotic fervor of the 4th of July, you might want to buy a patriotic lamp for your home! Yes, they exist, and we have them. You can always search our online store with any keyword, but when you use “patriotic”, here’s what you get.
This first wall sconce needs a certain style of room to work….but why not? Maybe a game room or kid’s play room in a patriotic theme.
These next two lamps, however, are a great subtle tribute to show off your patriotism. We love the country colors, as that neutral works with many people’s spaces. Lamps like this certainly work all year, but you could also use them seasonally as a quick way to update your living space.
