ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Marine Corps Logistics Base will be hosting their 4th of July celebration, filled with sparkling fireworks, carnival food and the event is free to the public.
Live bands will rock the stage, dozens of vendors will cater to crowds along with fun activities for the kids.
Last year over 10,000 people attended and they expect a large audience again this year. Captain Justin Jacobs says events like this help bridge the community with those on the base. He feels it's important to shed light on the birth of a nation.
"The 4th is just another reminder of that, in all reality it's a great time to take a pause, reflect...spend some time with family and friends and just have a good time," Captain Jacobs said.
You can catch the fireworks display Friday from 4 to 10 P.M. at the base. Be sure to bring your lawn chair and blankets!
