Independence Day celebrations are taking place throughout Kern County. From parades to barbecues, the Fourth of July has become a time to reflect on many things.
Fourth of July is a special holiday for Dana Maxwell and her family.
"I'm very patriotic, I was raised by a Navy man," said Maxwell. "My dad was in the service for 33 years, served in three wars, so my pride swells on the Fourth of July."
Maxwell sets up American flags to show off her pride every year.
James Mellinger plans to take his four-year-old out and light up some fireworks.
Some people spent today watching the World Cup.
The Fourth of July can mean many different things to different people, but most Kern County residents have found a fun way to celebrate this holiday.
