SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Community members are heartily invited to join military and civilian employees and their families in celebrating our nation's birthday, July 4, here, at Weyand Field.

The Army's 41st Annual Fourth of July Spectacular, a daylong celebration, includes games, a 5k Fun Run, a children's 1-mile fun run, crafts, a new products bazaar, entertainment, lots of food and evening fireworks.

Gates will be open for public access; however, random vehicle inspections will be conducted. Visitors will need to show a valid driver's license, proof of insurance and a current safety check.

Carpooling or walking to the event is encouraged. Backpacks and coolers, as well as vehicles, are subject to inspection.
