ALBANY, GA (WALB) -The Marine Corps Logistics Base expects more than 12, 000South Georgians to show up at their Independence Day celebration Thursday night.

Wednesday workers set up for the celebration.

Guests are asked to park at the Base's Main Gate on Fleming Road

then walk to Boyett Park where the events will be held.

The base promises more games for the kids, Miss Georgia, the Silver Knights Parachute Team from Ft. Benning, and the Marine Band leading up to the Fireworks show.

M.C.C.S. Marketing Director Edie Stratis said  "At dark, right as the band ends with the Stars and Stripes, we'll be shooting off our fireworks. And we do have more fireworks than we did last year."

You are reminded that you cannot bring weapons, coolers, or pets onto the base, but lawn chairs are welcome.

The gates will open at 4. The fireworks start a little after 9.
