Last year’s fiscal cutbacks had wide-reaching effects, and 2013′s Independence Day Celebration on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam wasn’t immune. For the first time in years, there were no fireworks lighting up the base in the night sky.

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation recently announced that America’s birthday will be celebrated again this year in a big way.

The spectacular fireworks show will return, and headliner entertainment will also return with national recording artists 3 Doors Down scheduled to perform at the base. Presented by Armed Forces Entertainment, the multi-platinum rock band will take the stage on Ward Field before the fireworks display.

Food and rides will again be available for purchase at the event, plus other surprises will add to the festivities. MWR will reveal the complete lineup of activities next month.
