Fourth of July Picnic Won't Cost You an Arm and a Leg

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- You and your friends don't need a lot of money in your pockets to enjoy a satisfying meal on the Fourth of July.

According to an informal survey by the American Farm Bureau Federation, the average cost of an Independence Day picnic is less than $6 per person.

That's based on its calculation that the average cost of a summer picnic for 10 people is $57.20.

The AFBF considers a typical picnic to include hot dogs and buns, cheeseburgers and buns, pork spare ribs, deli potato salad, baked beans, corn chips, lemonade, chocolate milk, watermelon for dessert, and ketchup and mustard.
