Uncle Sam wants you at its Fourth of July bash – well, at least he wants you, or some of you, in a raffle for five pairs of tickets to the gala.

The US Embassy in Tel Aviv announced Wednesday that for the second time in American history, it is giving away tickets to “the traditional Independence Day party” held annually at the residence of the US ambassador in Herzliya.

Each year around Independence Day, the ambassador hosts a crowded bash on the sea-side lawn of his home that draws a who’s-who of the country’s politicians, diplomats, IDF officers and journalists, and features such July 4 staples as fireworks, beer and bluegrass music.

The US ambassador, as well as the president and the prime minister, typically address the gathering.

This year, five pairs of tickets will be raffled off as part of a contest to identify blurred images of American sites, personalities and historical events that appear on the embassy’s Facebook page.

Those who answer correctly will enter the raffle for the party that will take place on July 3.
