The 4th of July, Independence Day, is the National Day of the United States of America. It is celebrated as a public holiday in USA and marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence of the then 13 states from the British Empire. The Declaration document had been drafted by Thomas Jefferson and the preamble begins with these words:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Markets in Canberra

Gorman House Markets
An indoor/outdoor market set in historic Gorman House. This market contains a variety of arts and crafts, food stalls and a farmers' market section. The courtyard setting creates a pleasant atmosphere and White Hat can particularly recommend the Laksa served at this market.
