Celebrate Independence Day and the Centennial of the National Park Service at Homestead National Monument of America on July 4, 2016, 7 p.m.at the Education Center. Join National Park Service Park Guide Nick Manes for a campfire program on the connection between the Declaration of Independence, the American Dream and homesteading. It has been said the American Dream was first manifested in the Declaration of Independence, which describes an attitude of hope, stating that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed…with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness".
This campfire program will also include music by Daniel Christian. Known for his original pop, rock and country songs, Daniel will also share songs inspired by the celebration of the 4th of July. Join us in song and story for an outstanding evening of music and history as we celebrate Independence Day.
