Stillwater’s Boomer Blast rescheduled for July 8

Team Radio Marketing Group - July 5, 2017 3:22 pm

STILLWATER  — The Chickasaw Boomer Blast Fireworks Show is rescheduled for Saturday, July 8, at Boomer Lake Park (Lakeview Road and Washington Street).

There will be no fireworks show on Wednesday, July 5, due to remaining wet conditions at the park. Heavy rains on the evening of July 3 made the park’s grass parking lots too soft to park vehicles.

“Our primary concern was the safety of the citizens observing the event and potential damage to the park due to saturated conditions, which serves our residents year-round, ” Special Events Coordinator Stephanie Kinder said. “Concerns over safety and the ability to relocate such a high volume of traffic to parking spots outside of the park also led to the decision to reschedule.”

Free parking lots at the park will open at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and the firework show will begin at 9:35 p.m. Residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the show. Lakeview Road Bridge will close to traffic to allow pedestrians to watch the fireworks.

Saturday’s program and activities will remain the same as those originally scheduled for July 4. The Stillwater City Council will also host a meet and greet table on the southwest side of the lake.

Residents can also listen to a live remote from Chickasaw Boomer Blast on Stillwater Radio KSPI Hot 93.7 FM.
