On the 4th of July in Rebild Municipality and Aalborg City (Denmark) there is held annual celebration in honor of Danish Americans.
The whole crowds of locals and visitors flock to the heather Rebild Hills, where you can watch the really grandiose action!
Some words about the history of this holiday. In 1912 several Danish Americans purchased 200 acres of land in Rebild Municipality. Their aim was to celebrate the 4th of July on their own land. Since then, thousands of Danish Americans and their descendants, as well as everyone celebrate Independence Day there, and the Stars and Stripes US flag waves alongside the flag of Denmark, Dannebrog.
What does the program of the event include?
- Super Rebild Party.
- Live music by the Danish and American artists, thematic exhibitions. Yum-yum is also planned – I mean eating traditional American dishes!
