We like our things big here in America — everything from our football stadiums to our McDonald’s. That also includes our fireworks shows, and you won’t find one bigger than the one at Bricktown 4th Fest. The event attracted about 5,000 people last year to the iconic district just east of downtown OKC, and with an array of live music, food and cold beverages, this year’s promises to be bigger and better. The party begins 4 p.m. (with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.) Friday in Bricktown, at the corner of Sheridan and Oklahoma avenues. Admission is free. Call 236-4143 or visit bricktownokc.com.
Three cheers for Red, White and Boom, the musical celebration of all things America hosted by the OKC Philharmonic Orchestra and vocalist Mike Eldred. The show features a number of classic American favorites, and it concludes with one of OKC’s finest fireworks displays (you know, the “boom” part). The concert begins at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, with fireworks at approximately 10 p.m., at Entertainment Plaza in State Fair Park, 3001 General Pershing Blvd. Admission is free.
