HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

More than 50,000 people are expected to pack Ala Moana Beach Park this Saturday for Fourth of July celebrations.

The Honolulu Police Department outlined some rules and regulations in advance of the revelry.

"We're looking to have a safe, wonderful, family event" said Captain Benjamin Mahi of HPD.

Friday night the city will allow one canopy and up to two people per to remain overnight within the park---which is usually closed from 10p to 4a---in order to establish picnic areas.

"No tents. And a tent is defined as a canopy with more than one wall" said Captain Mahi.

Once a site is established and canopy pitched, there are more rules to abide by.  Alcohol is not permitted, nor pets.  Smoking is not allowed.  Neither are firecrackers of fireworks.  HPD will also be on the lookout for laser pointers.  They made an arrest last year when one was being used illegally.

"We want to be friendly neighbors.  It's going to be a little crowded and the best thing to do is just be friendly neighbors and enjoy the day" noted Mahi.
