Fourth of July celebrations abound

From sea to shining sea, as the song goes, Americans are celebrating Independence Day in a variety of ways Sunday, from the traditional barbeque to a decades-old hot dog eating contest at New York's Coney Island.

There will be fireworks, of course, and a patriotic dose of music, too.

In Washington, the 30th annual concert on the National Mall, which precedes the fireworks show, will include performances from David Archuleta, Lang Lang, Gladys Knight, Darius Rucker and Reba McEntire.
