The American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine celebrated the Fourth of July by hosting the most awaited summer event – 28th Annual American Independence Day Picnic on July 6 at the Kyiv International School.
More than 4000 guests experienced cool entertainment, participated in contests, tried their luck in drawing of fabulous gifts and tasted truly American food inspired by famous U.S. Route 66, like California potato slices, Arizona burgers, New Mexico fajitas, Kansas corn and Illinois hot dogs.
AmCham Ukraine Picnic 2019 was fun for all ages – kids play areas, cowboy western dance masterclasses, lasso show, paper airplanes competition, sack race, exciting financial academy and stunning photo zones. Guests enjoyed great live music by DuckandCover band which consists of talented employees of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Alloise, Fireplace, DJ-sets and awesome performance by Druha Rika as a headliner.
The United States of America officially turned 243 years old on July 4th, and the White House held its first 4th of July celebration in 1801. Although the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine hasn’t been celebrating the 4th of July quite as long as the founding fathers have, they still know how to organize an amazing party.
