Spain

Just as we have our Civil War reenactments, the Spanish have them, too, but not that Civil War - one which came much earlier, between the 8th and 15th centuries. You can read more about it here.

Festivals commemorate these battles - between Christians and 'Moors' (Muslims from Morocco though not only - hence the name) all through Spain. This video is from the festivities in Petrer.

These festivals are not loved by everyone. You can read about opposition to them here.

This one looked the most interesting to me.

VH1 is set to air Philly 4th of July Jam, the largest free outdoor Fourth of July concert in the country. Hosted by actor-comedian Kevin Hart and featuring homegrown house band The Roots, the exhibition will showcase sets from Jill Scott, J. Cole, Grace Potter, John Mayer, and Ne-Yo. The show was originally slated to feature Demi Lovato as well, but due to strep throat, she’s cancelled her appearance. Rising country star Hunter Hayes takes her place to round out the night’s performances.
