. . . All those fireworks in the sky? Come July 4th, you will certainly have your pick of the litter in terms of fireworks displays. From Bricktown to Frontier City to surrounding communities, the sky will be afire with the boom and sparkle of pyrotechnics. When it comes to gazing upon the firework frenzy, you can certainly go the traditional route and set up in lawn chairs in a parking lot near the festivities. However, we also have a few outside-the-box suggestions if you're a fireworks-watching rebel. Each of the following have great outdoor spots (except for Vast where we must demand that you stay inside, seeing as it's on the 50th floor of OKC's tallest building) where you can enjoy food, drinks and a great view of the sky's shenanigans.
