Hot dogs, baseball and fireworks make the holiday come alive in Keizer. 

On July 4, the Mavericks Independent League will celebrate with the Jerry Howard Patriotic Tribute on the day the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes face the Portland Mavericks at 6 p.m. 

The evening will end with a fireworks display. 

Baseball will continue for the remainder of that week with the Salem Senators facing the Portland Mavericks at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 5 and a double header on Saturday, July 6, with games at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.
