Fourth of July festivities planned across Oklahoma

Fourth of July festivities planned across Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
On Friday, Americans will celebrate our Independence in different ways but one way you can't do it in Oklahoma City is with fireworks.

The city is reminding all residents in the city it is illegal to shoot off fireworks in city limits. Doing so could cost you more than $300 plus court costs AND they'll take away your fireworks. But you can still celebrate without paying a fine if you leave it to the professionals:

This festival kicks off in the morning at Yukon City Park with a children's parade, featuring creative and patriotic displays.

In the evening, head over to Chisholm Trail Park and enjoy free watermelon, free ice cream and live music.  Following is a performance by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, along with a huge fireworks display at dusk. Watch the Freedom Fest grand finale as spectacular fireworks light up the night sky while music sets the mood.

One of the longest-running July 4th festivals in the state can be found on the metro's east side. It marks the end of the blackberry harvest season with an annual July 4th community picnic.

Activities at this family friendly festival includes a carnival, car show, poker run, fireworks, children's games, live music and much more.


Pauls Valley

Watermelon Seed Spittin' World Championship

57 years in a row, Pauls Valley has been the home of the nationally-renowned watermelon seed-spitting contest that has become synonymous with the city.

Enjoy a good old-fashioned hamburger and hot dog cook-out with ice cold drinks and end the day with a hand-launched fireworks display at dark.


Stillwater

Boomer Blast

Stillwater is home to the Oklahoma State Cowboys but it's also home to Boomer Lake Park and that's where you'll find Boomer Blast. Featuring wakeboard and wake-skate competition, more than 250 athletes including the OSU & OU wakeboard teams compete to win the title of state champion.

Boomer Blast will also feature a variety of food vendors. Feast on traditional 4th of July fare such as cotton candy, snow cones, caramel apples, kettle corn, barbecue ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers and more. Stick around for the fireworks display and tune your radios to KSPI 93.7 for music choreographed with the show.
