Joe Biden Will Help Philly Celebrate Independence Day

The vice president makes every holiday a little more joyful, yes?

Vice President Joe Biden will be in Philadelphia to celebrate Independence Day — but, unfortunately, he won’t be on the parkway shaking his booty to Nicki Minaj and The Roots.

AP reports:

A statement released Monday by Biden’s office says he’ll participate in the “Celebration of Freedom” ceremony at Independence Hall.

The annual event includes music, speeches and a reading of excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.

More details of Biden’s trip were unavailable.
