Maybe a soldier is coming home. Maybe a soldier is leaving for war. Maybe the community just wants to celebrate America. Whatever the reason, there are lots of patriotic ways to show your red, white and blue with pride in a rally for the U.S.A..
Wherever the event is, don’t neglect the outside. First impressions are everything. Get your guests pumped before they even enter the door with flags on staffs. They come in a package of 12, so buy a few packages and line the walkways with them. If that’s not enough, get an entire Patriotic Decorating Kit!
If the goal is to show American spirit, go all out with a Patriotic Balloon Arch. It’s decorated with latex and mylar balloons in red, white, blue and silver. For something more simple, stand two Patriotic Columns at the entrance that read, “God Bless America.”
Nothing gets people more pumped up for their country than some patriotic music. Consider playing songs like “America the Beautiful,” “God Bless the USA,” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic” as people settle in for the rally. Naturally, you’ll want to kick the rally off with “The Star Spangled Banner.” Live music is best or at least someone local who will sing it.
Someone has to lead the rally from behind a podium or microphone. Make sure the setting is dazzled in red, white, and blue decorations. Consider patriotic streamers, balloons, and hang some patriotic danglers from the ceiling.
Have some speakers lined up for the rally. Choose the most energetic and motivating people you know to get the crowd excited about the event. It would be a great idea to have a veteran speak about his or her experiences in military and how important patriotism is to them.
As long as your rally honors the U.S.A. and gets people pumped about supporting their country, your rally is successful. Some may find the music and speakers moving, and others might get misty-eyed at the vision of so many red, white and blue decorations.
Show you support the U.S.A. and hold a rally to honor the country you love!
