Editor's note: Moving day for News On 6 is coming at the end of the year, so we have to inventory everything in our old building. That includes thousands of old stories. We'll share the best of what we find here on NewsOn6.com.

The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate our nation's birthday.

For well over 200 years we've done that with red, white, and blue, barbeque, picnics, and parades. And, of course, fireworks.

News On 6's Rick Wells took a trip through the video vault and found a few stories from July 4, 1985.

Check out the video from the vault to see how a fireworks display got shown up by Mother Nature, what was buried in Veterans Park on Independence Day, and how some Tulsans staged a homemade parade.
