Nearly 80,000 people celebrated 4th of July at the Folds Of Honor Freedom Fest Wednesday night. More than 140 volunteers worked to make it a flawless night. Two different venues were open, one at River West Festival Park and at Veterans Park.
The celebration included activities for the whole family, games, live entertainment, lots of food and of course 25 minutes of fireworks, with nearly 7,000 large firework shells.
"Tonight is the biggest fireworks show in Tulsa hands down,” said events coordinator Ryan Howell. "We have been preparing for six months for this event, there's a staff at river parks that has been working diligently for the last six months".
The celebration had activities for the whole family but it was also about giving back, with proceeds benefiting Folds of Honor.
"They provide scholarships for spouses and children of fallen or disabled servicemen and women throughout the country," said Brandon Thompson of QuikTrip.
