On July 4th, over 1000 participants gathered at the U.S. Ambassador`s residence in Pirita to celebrate the 240th anniversary of the US independence! Among them, many of our chamber members!

Everybody had a chance to be part of a truly American festive BBQ  - hot-dogs, pizza, burgers were served, also some products by such famous American brands as McDonald`s , Subway etc.

Hon. Ambassador James Melville held a festive speech and both, Estonian and American, anthems were performed.

The highlight of the event was of course the famous cake, created by AmCham`s member, Radisson Blu Sky Hotel and it`s chefs. As always, the cake was beautiful and delicious!

Also, because 2016 is the US presidential election year, all guests had a chance to vote for one of the two most popular candidates. In the end of the event, Hillary Clinton was announced to be the winner of this Estonian fun local election.

We would like to thank Hon. Ambassador James D. Melville, Jr.,  Mrs. Joanna C. Melville and their whole team for hosting the event and inviting AmCham members to join the celebration!
