Fourth of July is commonly associated with celebrations, great food, family time, barbecue, picnics, concerts and many more fun activities. This is a special day for the U.S. as we celebrate our independence. What better way to enjoy your Independence Day than by having your friends and family over for a pool party? The pool is a great place for people to gather, eat, talk and have a fun evening. Additionally, knowing that it’s already summer – the pool is one of the best places to cool off. Here are a few ideas for a great pool party:


Pool parties are not complete without decorations. Make sure to add anything red, white and blue to your backyard. You can put swimming pool balls, fantastic lighting, and tables and chairs with cool designs. The pool might be the center of attention, but torches, streamers and balloons can also accentuate it. Add anything that you think can add up to your picture-perfect venue!


Without great food, a pool party may not seem complete. Make sure to prepare your favorite foods that everyone can enjoy. Finger foods are always a hit. Grilling barbecue and hot dogs make for fun, delicious meals! Patriotic dishes are always a hit around the 4th of July. Perhaps you could try your hand at a red, white, and blue ice cream cake? Don’t forget to prepare coolers too!


Independence Day is nothing but an ordinary holiday. Make sure to enjoy every moment of our freedom and have fun with your family and friends! Apart from swimming, facilitate pool games (always practice safety) such as pool volleyball, water polo or basketball. You can also do “Capture the Change” and chicken fight, which these games are always a winner with kids. There are more fun swimming pool games you can do during this celebration, just make sure to be ready!


Finally, be sure to take a few moments and reflect on this special time. Remember the men and women that have given their lives for our country and our freedom and celebrate their efforts.
