Ruiqi Z. of China spent the 4th of July in Grand Marais, Minnesota. She described her day: "After work, we went downtown. We just hung around and watched the parade. Unlike normal days, the street bacame very crowded and noisy. Although we are not Americans, we were as happy as everyone around us. I've been here for more than 20 days but this is the happiest day. Cheer for America. By the way, the firework was really beautiful! Tonight we are young."
