More than 800 guests attended AmCham Denmark’s Independence Day Family Picnic at Rydhave, the official residence of the U.S. Ambassador. This year’s celebration was marked by sunny skies and fantastic food, helping to confirm its reputation among Americans and friends in the wider Danish community as a great day for families and a fun taste of American culture.

Chargé d’Affaires Terry McCulley was on hand to greet guests and provide a formal welcome from the stage set up on Rydhave’s expansive garden. The U.S. Embassy’s own Anne Millen-Martini – Community Liaison Officer at the U.S. Embassy – sang The Star-Spangled Banner to celebrate America’s 233rd birthday. Entertainment for the rest of the day was supplied by The Chicago Blues Cruise, a Copenhagen-based big city blues band.

Guests of all ages enjoyed the usual AmCham Independence Day extravagances: a charming and relaxed setting, families reclining on blankets, and warm greetings from business associates and friends. Additionally, there were plenty of activities for kids – an American football toss, a bouncy castle, basket ball hoop shoot and gunny sack and three-legged races. Kids were asking how long until the next celebration! And for the adults, WMAN had five off-road Segway Personal Transporters at the residence to test drive around the grounds.

In anticipation of the 2016 Summer Olympic host city decision taking place on October 1 in Copenhagen, Chicago 2016 was on site to highlight the windy city and urged the crowd to pass their friendship batons to friends far and wide.

As always, a highlight of the day – in addition to the BBQ spareribs, hotdogs, pizza, ice cream and sandwiches – was the prize drawing, with prizes ranging from an Xbox to computer printers to a Weber BabyQ grill. The grand prize provided by Icelandair was round trip airfare to any of their U.S. destinations.

In all, AmCham’s 4th Independence Day Family Picnic was a resounding success and plenty of smiles were still visible as guests departed.

AmCham Denmark thanks its generous Independence Day sponsors.
