For over 20 years, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum has hosted a day-long 4th of July commemoration fun for the entire family. Over 3,500 people come up to our hilltop each year to enjoy games, activities, arts and crafts, presidential lookalikes and patriotic music. When COVID19 closed our Museum to the public our thoughts quickly turned to our joyous event and how we might be able to still celebrate it while still conforming to new policies and guidelines about social distancing and limited group sizes. So this year we went 100% virtual! From an online 4th of July costume contest, to at-home crafts and activities, to a great virtual event, we were proud to still bring our community a great engaging, educational and family fun day. Today we will be sharing our virtual program, which includes patriot music, as well as remarks from Thomas Jefferson, Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, and Benjamin Franklin, as well as amusing Flag trivia by Betsy Ross.
