Fireworks

Fireworks

Have you ever wondered how fireworks became America’s Fourth of July pastime? One reason is because John Adams wanted it to be. In a letter to Abigail Adams on July 3, 1776, Adams said, “It [Independence Day] ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

Though you can’t set off your own fireworks in the metro, you can still carry on this American tradition by enjoying a great public show. Check out the full list of public fireworks displays below happening throughout the OKC metro to celebrate the Fourth of July the way our Founding Fathers intended.
