The annual July Fourth celebration at Fort Knox will start at eleven o'clock in the morning.
A Salute to the Nation Ceremony at the Court of Honor kicks things off with the 113th Army Band playing patriotic music. The ceremony includes a speaker and the Salute Battery firing a salute to each of the states in the U-S and another for the territories.
At six-p-m, the celebration moves to the Amphitheater in Keyes Park on Chaffee Avenue. Vendors selling food and beverages will be located in the park; however, visitors may bring their own picnics. At eight p-m, "Familiar Faces," a variety band from Tennessee entertains with songs from the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. Traditional fireworks begin around ten p-m. All activities on Fort Knox are open to the public and free of charge.
