Celebrating the 4th of July in Aruba

ORANJESTAD – Aruba, one of the three ABC islands in the southern Caribbean, is a unique destination that blends the charm of a small island with the vibrancy of a bustling tourist hotspot. Its location, miles off the coast of Venezuela, offers a blend of cultural influences, evident in its language, food, and festivals. The island is an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and boasts a population of approximately 100,000 inhabitants. With an average annual temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius) and constant trade winds, it provides an ideal setting for outdoor festivities and celebrations.

One such celebration that has gained popularity over the years is the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day. Every year, in honor of the visiting friends from the USA, there is a vibrant celebration on the island, complete with food specials, deals on drinks, celebratory events, and fun activities. The culmination of the day’s festivities is a beautiful firework show on Palm Beach, beginning at 9 PM.
