By  | 

While many will be preparing to bring out the grill, several individuals will celebrate becoming U.S. citizens Friday as a local community honors them in a naturalization ceremony.

The Lenoir County Historical Association in Kinston will be hosting the special ceremony to induct 26 individuals from countries all over the world.

Naturalization ceremonies have been held in Kinston every Independence Day since 2005. The celebration is a July 4th tradition among others, including barbeques and fireworks.

The ceremony will be conducted by U.S. Federal Judge Randy Doub and include many guests such as a Color Guard composed of Camp Lejeune Marines.

The public can watch as the newly naturalized receive official permission to call America their home 10 a.m. Friday at the grounds of the historic Harmony Hall in Kinston.
