Posted on 16 July 2013 by Administrator

Across the United States of America, as every July 4 for 237 years is celebrated Independence Day, date which in 1776 , 13 first American colonies declared independence from the British Empire.
Independence celebrations traditionally celebrated with fireworks, with parades in the capital and other major cities, as well as concerts, marching , picnics and patriotic songs. But, most Americans celebrate Independence Day with family dinners.

The most visited city at least in historical terms, is Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania, known as the birthplace of the U.S., where the founding fathers met to draft the Declaration of Independence. The main parade was held in Washington, where traditionally parade the veterans and musical bands from 50 countries from around the U.S.

In the anniversary of independence it is commemorated the country’s founders courage and are thanked the U.S. forces serving in different countries of the world, including the U.S. peacekeeping contingent in Kosovo which with their sacrifice and commitment are serving to peace for 14 years. America, a country built on ideals, equality and freedom would be for more than two centuries one of the most favorite places to emigrate, just looking for these ideals.

In this occasion the Embassy of the USA in Tirana organised a reception where most of the diplomats in Albania attended, one of the guests was the honorary consul of Mexico, Ylli Ndroqi.
