The Fourth of July 2014 was the fifty-fifth content update and a relatively small event released on July 2, 2014, right at the end of the Stonecutters 2014 Event. The event included all new content as well as returning content from the previous Fourth of July.

The main questline, Failure to Launch, has Homer, Lisa and Giuseppe working to save the 4th of July fireworks display.

Along with all the new and returning Fourth of July themed items, this minor event also added the Sit-N-Rotate, a site that has been in the game's files since the Valentine's Day 2014 Event.
