Ontario Police are gearing-up for the usual big crowd and heavy traffic for the city's annual Independence Day Celebration Thursday.

Police Captain Dale Myers says Shelby-Ontario, Milligan, and Rock Roads will be closed for a 5-K run starting at 8:30 am, with the parade at 4:15 pm going along Milligan and Shelby-Ontario Roads.

The big problem will be leaving after the fireworks, but Myers Ontario Police are prepared to move traffic as smoothly as possible, and he urges drivers to be patient.

Marshall Park will be used for parking for the fireworks, with spectators watching them at  Ontario high school and middle school.

MIX 106.1 FM will be providing the soundtrack to the fireworks show.  So bring your radio and listen to music synchronized to the display, on WVNO.
