With the 4th of July just a couple of days away, I am sure many of you are planning to celebrate our nation's birthday with a barbecue bash. Nothing says the summer more than an outdoor dinner with hot dogs & hamburgers off the grill. Throw in fire-flies, a couple glasses of sangria, and a soft odor of bugs spray...you have the quintessential summer evening.
Independence Day calls for all that, and a little bit more. It's time to bring the family and friends together, cue the sparklers, red white + blue table cloth, and watch the fireworks light up the sky.
Before we get too excited over the 4th of July celebration, let's stick to the basic: the barbecue.
LIFE magazine kicked off July by collecting some of their favorite barbecue photos. If
this doesn't get you in the mood for a summer night, I don't know what will.
Start your grills!
