(CNN) - With this Independence Day comes a myriad of events courtesy of the 2012 GOP presidential candidates who will frequent July 4th celebrations mostly in important early voting states.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will walk in a parade along Main Street in Amherst and another in Laconia. He will also visit a holiday celebration in Andover.
Former Utah Gov.Jon Huntsman will participate in the same parade in Amherst before a holiday-inspired line up of a barbecue, house party and cookout throughout the state.
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann will attend a holiday parade too, but this one in Clear Lake, Iowa.
Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania will march in two Iowa parades, one in Urbandale and another in Iowa Falls, while former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain will speak at an Independence Hall tea party event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Cain will end his day throwing the first pitch at a baseball game in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The early presidential contests in New Hampshire, the site of the first-in-the-nation primary, and Iowa, the site of the first-in-the-nation caucuses, can make or break a run for the White House, causing contenders to frequent the states with regularity.
