Marshall celebrated Independence Day Tuesday evening, July 4, at what was previously the Marshall Habilitation Center campus. Children played with sparklers and glow sticks as they waited for the firework display, and the Marshall Municipal Band performed for approximately an hour prior to the light show. MMB will not be performing its weekly Thursday concert this week.
The firework display was organized by the Marshall Chamber of Commerce, with sponsorships from multiple community businesses. This was the nationís 241st birthday.
