Celebrate 4th of July with Stone Temple Pilots

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Morale, Welfare and Recreation

America’s birthday is always one of the biggest celebrations on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

Add into the mix the thousands of visiting personnel for the 2018 Rim of the Pacific exercise and July 4 could be so big that the crowds may need to spread beyond Ward Field.

That is just what Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) is going to do this year.

Recognizing the potential mix of families with visiting Sailors, the 4th of July Celebration will be spread between two nearby areas.

As before, Ward Field will be home for the main stage entertainment.

This year, Armed Forces Entertainment presents multiplatinum and Grammy Award-winning recording artists Stone Temple Pilots.

The rockers are scheduled to take the stage at 7:30 p.m. and play until the fireworks spectacular at approximately 9 p.m.

Before the concert, Ward Field and the nearby parking area will feature food and beverages for purchase, as well as free activities.

The Car Show & Shine returns this year, plus free games will be available for play on the field. In the parking lot there will be Pacific Roller Derby matches and demonstrations.

When it comes to family-friendly attractions, Lara Katine of MWR Special Events said they are providing options for a positive experience.

“With the keiki area a short jaunt away from the concert, families can still enjoy live entertainment catered to youth and families, without the adult atmosphere that a rock concert can bring,” she said.

The family activities will be staged in the grassy areas near the Navy Exchange Fleet Store across from Bravo Pier. Many familiar free activities will return, such as the train ride, petting zoo and others.

Xtreme Fun will bring rides and inflatables (tickets available for purchase at site) for families.

Katine pointed out that families near the NEX Fleet Store can also grab a spot early to see the fireworks.

Katine recommended that patrons read the entrance guidelines carefully to know what is and isn’t allowed. On Ward Field for example, bags and backpacks are not allowed.

She added it’s a good idea to bring sunscreen and stay hydrated. “It’s always a good habit to bring cash and avoid the ATM lines so you can enjoy the ono food from around the island,” she said.
