PETERSBURG, Va. -

Fort Lee says its Independence Day celebration will be scaled back this year.       

Garrison commander Col. Rodney D. Edge says Fort Lee had to identify ways to keep costs to a minimum for the July 4 event.  

The Fourth at the Fort event at Williams Stadium in Petersburg will include music by the 392nd Army Band followed by a fireworks display.

Admission is free and open to the public.     

Some attractions such as a children's play area won't be offered this year, but food and beverage vendors will be available.
