Get ready for a big bang as several Oklahoma towns are gearing up for explosive fireworks displays in honor of our nation’s 240th year of freedom.
At most events, guests are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs to sit on, and to leave all pets at home.
NOTE: STILLWATER‘s display has been postponed until Tuesday night due to rain. The event starts Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., and the display kicks off at 9:35 p.m. at Boomer Lake Park. Bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on. Food truck vendors will be on hand, as well as free inflatables for kids.
