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.

Our independence was costly. Ponder that while eating hotdogs and watching fireworks.
