A very special naturalization ceremony is taking place tonight in Southport, where a group of 100 members of the United States armed forces will become U.S. citizens. The ceremony is part of the Southport July 4th festival which is the oldest independence celebration festival in the United States. The ceremony takes place on the lawn of Fort Johnson, an army installation that overlooks the Cape Fear Inlet leading into the Atlantic Ocean. There will be patriotic music, the Sea Notes choral group, cannon salutes and military flyovers. The ceremony starts at 5:00 p.m. with the posting of the colors by the local Fire Department.
