MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - 2012's Fourth of July 4 celebration was a washout at the Battleship Memorial Park.
The Mobile Pops didn't play and the lawn was drenched. So for 2013, Memorial Park Executive Director Bill Tunnell is hoping for some better weather.
"As long as we don't have a huge, saturating rain, 2-3 inches, we should be okay to do the event," said Tunnell.
Tunnell said cars will park on the front lawn, which is about 40 acres and can hold 4,000-5,000 cars.
On Wednesday, staff was getting ready for the thousands of people expected to flood the park.
"The concert will be open and we'll have concessions. You can bring coolers and snacks just no grills or alcoholic beverages. Just come and have a great time," said Tunnel.
The park will be open for normal business hours July 4.
After 5 p.m. entrance to the park costs $5.
