    WARWICK, RI —  Today marks the 242nd year for the United States and unofficially begins capital-s Summer with mid-week day off for many people – here’s what’s open:

    The Fourth of July has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, according to History.com. On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence. Since 1776, July 4 has been recognized as the birth of American independence, with fireworks and barbecues in celebration.

    In Warwick, the City’s fireworks display got a head start on the holiday last night, but there are still many Fourth of July Fireworks displays on throughout the state for those who’d like to see pyrotechnics on the calendar holiday.

    City Hall and the school department are closed for the holiday. Trash, recycling, and yard waste pick-ups are delayed one day.
