July 4, 2024 Celebration 




JBPHH will be performing a 21 Gun Salute in honor of Independence Day starting at 1200 on Thursday, 04 July 2024.  One round will be fired every five seconds from Ford Island 40mm battery position.

a. The 4th of July celebration will be held onboard Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam at Ward Field and on the grassy fields by the fleet store from 1600 to 2100 on Thursday, 4 July 2024. To support this event, there will be traffic pattern modifications and street, parking and area closures.


b. Expect increased traffic at all entry points, please plan accordingly and allow additional time for commuting. JBPHH will have additional personnel at key gates (Nimitz, O’Malley, Makalapa, Borchers and Ford Island) when the RIMPAC events will cause increased traffic. Some gates will have extended hours.
