Not sure what to wear? You can dress up in as simple as red, white, and blue clothing—or get as crazy as you want, as long as you’re still able to get around, of course! Think Captain America, Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty, bald eagles, Washington Crossing the Delaware, etc. The more goofy, fun, light-hearted, and patriotic— the BETTER!
