    Watch Fireworks Fly

    The Oklahoma City sky is especially dazzling on the 4th of July – even on select days before and after the holiday! RIVERSPORT Rapids & Adventures kicks off the week's festivities on June 29 with the 8th annual Stars & Stripes River Festival, and the whole family can delight in a free patriotic performance and fireworks show orchestrated by the OKC Philharmonic on July 3.

    For a more thrilling 4th, enjoy a fun-filled day of roller coasters at Frontier City followed by a fireworks spectacular in the evening on July 4 and 6.

    Chow Down on BBQ

    Oklahoma City is continuously making national lists for some of the country's best barbecue. Head over to Leo's, an OKC icon dishing hickory-smoked meats, homestyle sides and a strawberry banana cake you can't leave without trying. If you find yourself in the Plaza District, Maples is a must-eat, or check out Iron Star while you're exploring Western Avenue.

    Make a Splash

    Summer's hottest days are in full force in July – fortunately, OKC has you covered from water parks to lakes to splash pads. Before finalizing your fireworks plans, dive in to super-soaking fun at White Water Bay, or splash around at the Myriad Botanical Gardens Thunder Fountain. You can find more places to beat the heat here!
