With booming American rock tunes like Bruce Springsteen's “Born in the USA” and generous slices of star-spangled cake, AmCham China celebrated the 239th year of American Independence Saturday at the Kerry Hotel in Beijing. Hundreds of guests and their families dug in to hamburgers, corn on the cob and other American staples. One lucky attendee even walked away with a free roundtrip ticket straight to the US thanks to a raffle prize from Delta Airlines.

See if you can find yourself in the video.

AmCham China would like to thank all of the attendees who made the afternoon so much fun, from the squirt gun-toting kiddies to Violette's memorable rendition of the National Anthem. In addition, AmCham would like to thank all of our sponsors, without whom our 4th of July celebration would not have been possible. First and foremost, our gratitude goes to our Premier Sponsors: Yew Jung International School of Beijing, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Oasis International Hospital.
