4th of July Parade
July 4, 2022
Today the Tibetan Association of Philadelphia participated in the 4th of July parade to celebrate America's Independence to show our rich culture to the general public.
On July 4th, the continental congress formally adopted the declaration of independence, which had been written largely by Jefferson. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American Independence.
Hope one day soon we will be celebrating Tibet's independence in Lhasa, Tibet!
