Thousands of people showed up at the Marine corp Logistics base to spend this 4th of July weekend with those who fight for our freedom. With the Marine Corps band rocking out tunes, rock climbing, clowns and moon bounces for the kids.

Plus food vendors selling favorites like funnel cakes and all kinds of fried treats there was something for everyone. Many families use this as an opportunity to have some good clean fun for the holiday weekend.

And for the big finale a fireworks show, to celebrate a day in history that will forever remind us of the sacrifices of the men and women of our armed forces for the freedom in this country we call America.
