The U.S. is expected to celebrate the Fourth of July with a fireworks display in Washington, D.C., on Monday.
This comes as tragedy struck a Fourth of July parade in the Chicago-area suburb of Highland Park, Ill., earlier in the day, where a shooting has left six people dead, and 24 individuals sent to the hospital, according to local officials.
Last year, U.S. celebrations returned across the nation amid loosened COVID-19 restrictions, after the pandemic forced the cancellation of nearly all celebrations from the year before.
The July fourth holiday, also known as Independence Day, celebrates the U.S. founders’ declaration of independence from Britain in 1776.
