It’s officially July 4th, also known as Independence Day in the United States of America. There’s plenty of different ways to celebrate the special holiday, even in Minecraft.

As of writing, there’s no word on if Mojang Studios will be hosting any special event or releasing anything special for Independence Day in Minecraft. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the event yourself in-game.

You might be scratching your head trying to think of the best ways to celebrate. Well, look no further as DualShockers have put together a list of the best ways to celebrate the holiday in Minecraft.

Set Up A Firework Display

One of the best and most creative ways to celebrate Independence Day 2021 in Minecraft is to set up your very own fireworks display. Now, this can be rather tricky, because if you want to do it correctly it requires some redstone knowledge.

Fireworks can simply be placed down and let off at your own will, but where’s the fun in that? Set up a detailed redstone operation and create your very own fireworks display. We recommend checking out some YouTube tutorials if you’re not familiar with redstone builds.

YouTuber BlenDigi has a great tutorial on setting up a fireworks display, so we’ve attached the video below.

Build An Independence Day Themed Building

Another great way to celebrate this American holiday is by getting creative with your builds. It’s time to get rid of the dirt hut you’ve been living in and build a giant white house to celebrate Independence Day.

Or why not build the statue of liberty out of the new copper blocks that were recently added in 1.17? The possibilities are endless.

Battle With Friends

If you’ve got a bunch of friends also looking to set up their own Independence Day themed event in Minecraft, why not get geared up and create your own battle for independence?

Players can set up a set amount of time to gear up, then battle to the death to claim their ground.

Download Mods or Maps

There are also plenty of mods and maps that are available for download. Simply head to Planet Minecraft or CurseForge to download your own mods and get creative.

Planet Minecraft features various Independence Day themed maps to explore, most of which focus on the alien spaceship from the Will Smith film, Independence Day. Players can also download custom skins for their character, why not dress up as Captain America himself for your Minecraft Independence Day fun?
