Who doesn’t love a great fireworks show? We may be biased (we are) but we think Oklahoma’s gorgeous, wide-open skies give any fireworks show a little extra pop. See what we did there? We’ve rounded up some of the best fireworks shows in Oklahoma City, and we’ve come up with some terrific, out-of-the-box spots to watch them. Fireworks fun starts in late June and runs through the 4th of July and later!  

Looking for Oohs and Aahs? Here’s where to see the best fireworks in OKC. 


Firework Shows

Stars & Stripes River Festival

After an exciting day in OKC’s Boathouse District, you’ll be ready to relax and enjoy one of the city’s best fireworks shows almost two weeks before the 4th of July. Head over early and watch rafting, rowing, kayaking and dragon boat racing at Oklahoma City’s annual Stars & Stripes River Festival. When you’re not watching the action, enjoy hands-on fun including RIVERSPORT adventures – surfing, rafting, climbing, tubing and more – plus great food and yard games. The fun ends with fireworks Saturday, which are extra reflected on the Oklahoma River. Admission to the festival is free; parking is $10.   


Red, White & Boom

Join the OKCPHIL and Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate for a Red, White & Boom at Scissortail Park in downtown OKC. Bring your blankets, lawn chairs and the whole family to enjoy a lovely evening outside with beautiful, inspiring music, followed by fireworks! 


Six Flags Frontier City July 4th Festival

What do we love even more than roller coasters? Fireworks! Celebrate the independence of our beautiful country, and experience the thrill of freedom at Frontier City's July 4th Festival. The park will stay open extra late - until 10 p.m. – on July 4, 5 and 6 so you’ll have plenty of time to ride all the rides, enjoy all the snacks and then catch great fireworks show! 


Oklahoma City Baseball Club (formerly OKC Dodgers)

While you can certainly catch a great fireworks show after the OKC vs. Las Vegas Aviators game on July 5, you definitely don’t have to wait that long. Fireworks fans can enjoy post-game fireworks shows every Friday during the season! 


Insiders’ scoop: if you love grabbing a blanket and watching fireworks from ‘ground zero,’ that’s terrific. If you’d rather enjoy, say, a rooftop martini while oohing and ahhing, here are a few spots to try. 


For the ‘glamping’ version of fireworks watching, this special, fine dining spot perched at the very top of Downtown OKC’s Devon Tower cannot be topped. Patrons can enjoy panoramic views of the city. Call ahead and ask for a table with a view of the fireworks show you’re interested in, sit back and enjoy! 

O Bar

At the top of Midtown’s Ambassador Hotel is a sophisticated little bar with outstanding cocktails, delectable bites and a wrap-around outdoor space so you can see fireworks from the north, south, east or west. 

Social Capital

Their rooftop deck is a phenomenal spot to catch the fireworks show at Scissortail Park. Located on the west side of the park, with excellent views and 110 mostly-local craft beers, great cocktails and delicious nachos, salads, tacos and wraps, Social Capital is a capital idea indeed.
