A celebration that looked to be one of the biggest ever on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam lived up to the billing. Thousands of patrons, including many of the international participants here for the Rim of the Pacific exercise, attended the 4th of July Celebration at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
The big draw for many was the chance to see the Stone Temple Pilots perform live at Ward Field and the rockers from California did not disappoint. The band, brought over by Armed Forces Entertainment, entertained the crowd for over an hour straight. It was a mix of the hits everyone came to hear along with songs from their most recent album.
At the end of the night, the wide variety of activities meant there was something for everyone and the climactic fireworks show fittingly punctuated the evening for the 15,000 in attendance.
Patrons of the 4th of July Celebration played games, partook in activities, met farm animals and watched the Stone Temple Pilots. The evening ended with a fireworks display.
