We’re getting ready to celebrate another July 4th in Oklahoma. If you are like the staff at Interstate Heat & Air Conditioning, you are excited to celebrate with family and friends. But before the fireworks, parades, and sparklers, you’ll need a plan. While there is always the option of sitting in your cool A/C, there are so many celebrations throughout the OKC area. We’ve compiled our list of ways to celebrate 4th of July in Oklahoma for easy Independence Day planning.
Ways to Celebrate July 4th in Oklahoma
Have a Cookout
Perhaps one of the more iconic ways to celebrate the 4th of July is a cookout. Invite your friends and family over for a day of swimming, lawn games, hot dogs and hamburgers. It will be hot out so be sure to provide plenty of water, and make sure you’re A/C is up to the challenge beforehand! Schedule your summer maintenance with Interstate Heat & Air so that we can be sure your system will run smoothly for your celebration.
Blue Star Museums
Blue Star Museums offer free admission to active duty military families from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Museums participate across the country, so check the list of participating locations to visit if you are traveling as well!
From car shows to rodeos, to kites, LibertyFest has something for everyone! Bring the whole family all week long to the events and enjoy the largest firework display in the OKC metropolitan area! LibertyFest was nationally recognized as one of the top 10 4th of July celebrations in the USA.
Stars and Stripes Festival
The Stars and Stripes Festival takes place in the Boathouse district of OKC. 2017 will be the 6th year of the festival. Enjoy activities on the water, live music, food, drinks, and fun for the whole family. Bring out your competitive side and participate in the Riverfront White Water Rafting 5k, or spectate on the sidelines to see the excitement. This is a favorite among OKC residents in the hot sun of July!
One of the lesser celebrated 4th of July pastimes is shopping! National holidays are one of the simplest ways to predict a great sale! Head out to Penn Square or the OKC Outlets to shop the deals, or better yet, stay in your cool A/C to avoid the traffic. Make sure you have changed your air filter in the last few months, we recommend changing it once every 3 months, so that your system is working it’s most efficiently while you shop!
