In honor of Independence Day, American Heritage Bank presents the 20th annual fireworks show in Sapulpa on Monday, July 4.
For most, July 4th tradition involves friends, family and lots of food capped off with a fireworks display. Folks in every town make an annual pilgrimage to their local fireworks show, toting blankets, coolers, snacks, and a radio while contemplating the freedom that characterizes our nation. For Sapulpans, a trek toward the Municipal Golf Course will be rewarded with one of the finest shows in the region, thanks to American Heritage Bank.
“People look forward to seeing the show, and we work hard to give it to them,” says Sarah McCormick, vice president and marketing director of American Heritage Bank.
Planners expect more than 15,000 people to watch the fireworks show, which is provided by Celebration Pyrotechnics. Musical accompaniment by Four Winds will be broadcast on 88.5 FM in a two-mile radius.
The fireworks will be launched from the Sapulpa Municipal Golf Course, with recommended viewing areas located to the south. Attendees are encouraged to park at the Walmart Supercenter or the fields nearby, where there will be plenty of space for you and your loved ones to take in one of the countries most beloved forms of celebration.
“We invite everyone to bring their lawn chairs, picnic baskets, footballs and Frisbees for an old-fashioned fireworks display. This is a fun event for the entire family,” says McCormick.
The fun begins at 7 p.m. and stretches into the night – until the fireworks run out. The Kids Korner will have plenty of activities to help the children burn off some energy and occupy their attention until the sun goes down. At about 9:45, the fireworks will begin. Don’t forget to tune in to 88.5 FM to catch the live broadcast and choreographed music.
“American Heritage Bank sponsors this show in order to say ‘thank you’ to our community for all their support, business and patronage,” says McCormick, who has been planning this event since its inception 20 years ago. “Bring the whole family out and join the fun!”
