ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Marine Corps Logistics Base is gearing up for its big July 4th celebration.

This will be the 22nd year the base will host the event.

It will be held Friday, June 30. 

There will be plenty of activities for everyone, including bouncy houses, a military working dog demonstration, musical performances, games and other events.

"We encourage them to bring blankets and lawn chairs, just have a good time. Listen to some music, eat a lot of great food and enjoy the fireworks," said Commanding Officer Col. James Carroll III.

Carroll said that if there is bad weather, the fireworks display will be moved to the next night.
