It’s nearly here – our country’s birthday! July 4th is the biggest holiday of the summer. From barbecues to parades to the beach, people will be celebrating this highlight of the summer season.
If you live in Napa, chances are you’ve heard of the annual Napa County Fair and Fireworks celebration each 4th of July. It’s an all-day event with something for everyone. From a classic parade through downtown Calistoga to nostalgic games, picnicking, and activities at the fairgrounds, ending with a spectacular fireworks display, this is an event that’s ideal for the whole family.
Visitors to the Napa area may also want to check out other Independence Day events. Other great spots to catch fireworks displays include Napa, which hosts a festival at Oxbow Commons followed by fireworks. Veteran’s Park or the riverfront promenade are also ideal viewing spots. And, if you’re in the St. Helena area, its fireworks show is at 9 p.m. in Crane Park, which can be seen from anywhere in town.
With fireworks creating sparks in the sky, perhaps you need some wine country jewelry to sparkle on your wrist. If you’re looking for something in a patriotic shade of blue, visit our online jewelry store. There, you’ll find a selection of stunning bracelets that are perfect for your 4th of July outfit.
For example, my blue and white cuff bracelet features two 5mm bands of fine denim blue leather and silver studs snuggled up to a pebbly texture white leather. Sweet and simple, but unique. This piece would complement any Independence Day attire.
Or, for something a bit dressier, my turquoise Spanish leather bracelet is a find. A lovely shade of soft turquoise Spanish leather in a thick 10mm rope is set off by a collection of textured silver plate beads and a lovely cat’s eye blue bead at the center. This piece was handcrafted in the Napa Valley for the Stag’s Leap collection.
As fireworks light up the nighttime sky, you can be sure you’ll also be in the spotlight wearing a unique piece of jewelry from Jewels of the Vineyard.
