Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4 1776, declaring independence from the Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Decorations like streamers, balloons, and clothing are generally colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades are often in the morning, while fireworks displays occur in the evening at parks, fairgrounds, or town squares. Independence Day is the national day of the United States. The first week of July is typically one of the busiest American travel periods of the year, as many people utilize the holiday for extended vacation trips.

These were measured in downtown Springfield from 1879 to 1947, and at Capital Airport from 1948 to the present.
