The college will host its 42nd annual Fourth of July celebration at Nemzek Stadium.

It begins at 6:30 that night and will include free inflatable games, a decorated bicycle parade and concerts.

The Lake Agassiz Concert Band and Front Fenders will provide musical entertainment.

The marquee event, the fireworks show, starts at 10:30.

David Wahlberg/MSUM Marketing and Communications: "We call it an old fashioned 4th of July and that's exactly what it is. It's the kind of community celebration that I grew up in a small town in Minnesota and we had something like this. Well, the scale here in Fargo-Moorhead is bigger so the celebration is perhaps a little bit bigger as well. But, it's the same sentiment. It's the opportunity to sit down with your neighbors and just enjoy a nice night out."

8,000 people are expected to attend the event.
