Celebrate America’s Independence and a return to normal this Fourth of July with patriotic-themed floats and other essentials that you can enjoy in your custom-designed backyard pool.
Spending time in the water is an excellent way to stay cool as Valley temperatures are expected to be 108°F on the Fourth of July.
You can find a variety of fun pool floats, noodles, and beach balls online and in-stores for spending a relaxing day in the pool and enjoying all-American classics like hot dogs and juicy hamburgers.
Must-Have Pool Essentials
Patriotic pool noodles can be purchased from retailers for a very affordable price. There are different sizes available to help enhance your family’s water fun. They can be used to float in your custom-designed backyard pool or play games, whether in the water or on land, such as creating an obstacle course or playing limbo.
Surprise each member of your family with a red, white, and blue star ring or float. These are ideal for spending a relaxing day on the water – remember to apply sunscreen frequently – and, if you’re close enough to one of the following displays, watch as the fireworks light up the night sky.
