OKC Philharmonic Red White Boom festival fireworks music

Celebrate the Fourth of July with a massive fireworks show at Scissortail Park, featuring patriotic music and a salute to the armed forces.

As the Fourth of July approaches, celebrations are gearing up with a spectacular fireworks show set to light up the night sky on Wednesday. One of the most anticipated events is the Red, White and Boom festival hosted by the OKC Philharmonic at Scissortail Park, where tens of thousands of Oklahomans are expected to gather.

The festivities will kick off at 8:30 p.m. with the OKC Philharmonic performing classic American tunes. This year, the event is focusing on honoring and thanking those who have served in the armed forces. Executive director Brent Hart mentioned that there will be a special salute to the armed forces, including a medley to recognize individuals from each branch.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the celebration, bringing together guests to enjoy patriotic music and a stunning fireworks display. For the best view of the fireworks, attendees are advised to position themselves on the west side of Scissortail Park. Special guests will also be joining the Philharmonic before the fireworks show begins at 10 p.m.

Guests are encouraged to come prepared with blankets, toys for kids, and lawn chairs to make the most of the evening. Vendors will be available on-site, offering t-shirts and food trucks for those who may need additional supplies. It is recommended to arrive early to secure a prime spot for viewing the fireworks.

In addition to the festivities at Scissortail Park, there are several other Independence Day events planned around Oklahoma. From a grocery tax cut to a heartwarming story of a son following in his father's law enforcement footsteps, there is no shortage of news to keep Oklahomans informed and entertained this holiday season.
