PLEASE REMEMBER THAT FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED AND SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES APPLY

In consideration of the Okinawa Prefectural Government’s guidance regarding large gatherings, our Independence Day Celebration scheduled for Saturday, July 4 from 3 to 9 p.m. will be downscaled with different offerings on Camps Foster, Lester and Plaza Housing. Although our planning included stringent mitigation measures to ensure the safety of participants in preventing the community spread of COVID-19, we do not believe holding a large, single-venue event before July 9 (when the guidance expires) would be appropriate.    

However, it is still our heartfelt desire to thank our community for their perseverance and celebrate the Fourth of July with festival foods and a fireworks display at 8:15 p.m., while enabling residents of Camp Lester and Plaza Housing to remain at home to enjoy the fireworks and festival food. 

On Camp Foster, MCCS will be serving Bulldogs Burgers, Hickory House All-American BBQ, and both adult and other icy beverages from the Kanpai Lounge at Godfrey Field, a.k.a., the Parade Deck, while also offering Navy MWR pastrami & cheese sandwiches and foot-long hot dogs along with a second Kanpai Lounge from the parking lot next to the Ocean Breeze and Field #3. The Exchange will be providing their AAFES Food Trucks at both Camp Lester and Plaza Housing. 

Admission to this event is FREE and is open to those authorized with base access.  Face coverings will be required (exception to eating and drinking) and social distancing measures apply.  Do not bring pets, glass bottles, outside alcohol or coolers.  Also, as always, MCCS encourages everyone to drink responsibly.  Don't drink and drive!
