Many of the traditions used to celebrate America's Independence Day are brought to you by companies that have been around for 100 years or more. Here are a few:
PyroSpectaculars by Souza 1906 Rialto, California
Beginning over 100 years ago and spanning five generations, the Souza family has been using their pyrotechnic skill to provide joy for their community and thrill crowds around the world. Long before the amazingly choreographed pyrotechnic displays for packed stadiums and television audiences today, the patriarch of the family was thrilling audiences closer to home. Today, the Souza family’s passion, pride, and tradition of fireworks continues to entertain millions around the world.
Nathan's Famous 1916 Jericho, New York
This Fourth of July people will gather by the thousands at the corner of Surf and Stillwell in Coney Island, NY to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Nathan’s Famous by playing witness to the most unique sporting competition in the world: Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. They’ll flock to Nathan’s flagship restaurant to catch a glimpse of hot dog eating legends and the celebration that is as uniquely American as it is Nathan’s.
Koegel's 1916 Flint, Michigan
