July 4th by the Numbers

Fireworks, freedom, and food, it's America's 246th birthday.
The most cooked food during this celebration? It's hot dogs, 150 million in total. According to WalletHub, Americans spend more than $7.5 billion on food and $1.4 billion on beer and wine.
Last year traveling and fireworks were discouraged due to the COVID-19 pandemic where 80% of community fireworks were cancelled nationwide. Not in Santa Barbara! The City splurged for a fireworks display to take place per tradition off West Beach at 9:00 p.m.
