The Fourth of July is a chance to celebrate America's Independence and to revel in the rebellious, patriotic spirit of liberty. To show their love for America, celebs spent the three-day weekend enjoying family, friends and freedom. Here's a look at how the stars celebrated the time-honored tradition.
Many celebs took to the beach with friends to commemorate the federal holiday including Amy Schumer, Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba, who celebrated with her daughters, Honor, 8, and Haven, 4.
Alba wasn't the only star to spend time with their kids over the long weekend. Mark Wahlberg jumped in the pool with his family to catch a break from the warm July sun.
Some celebs decided that the holiday should be spent frolicking with friends. Taylor Swift, Emma Roberts and Lea Michele, for example, decided to catch some fresh air with their besties over the holiday weekend, while Chrissy Teigen and John Legend enjoyed each other's company in the Hamptons.

Others, like Miley Cyrus, made sure to get into the spirit of the special day with their best furry friends.
Really, it seems the most important thing was showing some love for the U.S.A. by rocking any red, white and blue clothing imaginable, or just waving the American flag with pride.

The Fourth of July was also just a really good excuse to show off some skin.
Back in May, stars got patriotic for Memorial Day and rocked red, white and blue ensembles to show their love for their country. Check out the video below for a look at the festivities.
