Blackberry pie. Arm wrestling. Watermelon seed-spitting, a boot tossing, a raffle decided by a turkey. In other words, there’s more to Fourth of July in Oklahoma than flag-waving and pyrotechnics. Though there’s certainly plenty of those things, too.

Oklahoma is home to some of the largest fireworks displays in the midwest, and our Independence Day parades—especially the ones in our small towns—are second to none. In this guide you’ll find the roads that lead to both, and so much in between: a regatta and a city-wide picnic in our two largest metros, with watermelon chunkin’s, night swimming, and huckleberry milkshakes where the night stars shine brightest.
