This Independence Day, take in gallantly streaming fireworks and revel in your freedom with your family and friends in Tulsa by heading to a one of these four celebrations near our Springs at Woodlands South community:
Popularly known as Tulsa FreedomFest, this event has been hailed as "Tulsa's Favorite July 4th Fireworks Spectacular." Free inflatable play stations will be available for children at Veterans Park and River West Festival Park, along with live entertainment, food and beverages. Activities begin at 5 p.m. with the fireworks display commencing after dark.
At the Kendall-Whittier July 4th Parade, children have the opportunity to participate by creating their own "float" by decorating their bikes, trikes, scooters, wagons, and even strollers. Crepe paper and balloons are provided at the event, so your children can show their patriotism and let their creativity run wild. The decorating begins at 9 a.m., followed by the parade at 10 a.m. After the parade, children can enjoy free hot dogs, a splash pad, and games led by Teach for America students.
Just 12 miles outside of Tulsa, you can attend the Jenks America Freedom Fest, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in downtown Jenks. The festival will host live music, food trucks/vendors, and free watermelon. Water games and inflatables will be available in the "Kids Zone" at Second and Main.
If your schedule doesn't allow you to attend July 4th festivities, or you simply want to extend the celebration, Fantasy in the Sky at Skiatook Municipal Airport has you covered. This event is held on Sunday, July 3rd and is an all-day festival that culminates in a world-class fireworks show. The day begins with a community-wide parade, followed by live music and great food. After dark, the fireworks show draws 75,000 visitors to marvel at the stupendous fireworks display.
