Which holiday is described in Chicago’s hit song “Saturday in the Park”?

“Saturday in the Park” is a song written by vocalist Robert Lamm and recorded by the group Chicago for their 1972 album Chicago V. The song reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band’s highest-charting single at the time. Lamm was inspired to write the song while strolling through New York City’s Central Park on July 4, 1970. The song opens with the lyrics “Saturday in the park, I think it was the Fourth of July.” Lamm based the melody of the song on “You Won’t See Me” by The Beatles, something he has openly admitted.
