Celebrate the Fourth of July with fireworks from The Castle of Muskogee.
The Castle of Muskogee, Oklahoma’s 37,000-square-foot fireworks showroom keeps working to improve everyone’s enjoyment on the Fourth. Although the Castle of Muskogee has always guaranteed all fireworks to light, the new, higher quality means no disappointments on the Fourth.
“A new ‘look’ in fireworks for 2013 is the Big Top, a six row show with alternating red, white and blue tails to red, white and blue stars with finale of cracling stars in 42 shots! Pearly Gates with pink and green glitter, crackling tails and whistles in 29 shots. The American Chief with crackling and blue goes through 10 different displays before ending in stars and double spinners. Other items that have never been seen in Oklahoma include: Wicked Cool, Glory Honor Power, Booby Trap, Phat Fire, Pyrotechnics Princess, Jesters Joke, Vampire’s Blood and 23 more!
For better safety, the Castle joined the American Fireworks Standards Laboratory several years ago. AFSL is an independent testing organization that inspects fireworks before they leave China to assure safety. All fireworks, of course, must also pass inspection by the Consumer Product Safety Commission once they get to the United States. The new inspections procedures have resulted in a dramatic decrease in fireworks-related incidents in the U.S., even though fireworks imports have increased by many tons!
The quantity and selection this year at the Castle must be seen to be believed: imagine a football field covered with fireworks as high as you can reach all under one roof, and you’ll get an idea of what awaits you in Muskogee. The Castle, of course, is air conditioned, with accessible restrooms and plenty of paved parking at the door.
The annual fireworks sale lasts from June 15 through July 6. Hours are: June 15–30, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; July 1–4, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and July 5-6, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Castle of Muskogee has fireworks to please anyone, with prices for every budget. There are fireworks for smaller children plus more than 400 items for teens and adults including the largest selection in America of heavyweight and multi-action displays. Select from many versions of specially-priced Family Packs to get the most bang for your buck.
Over a quarter-million people visit the Castle each year for a variety of events including the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival, Haunted Castle, Christmas Kingdom, plus many weddings, private and corporate events.
When you can shop in a Castle, why shop anywhere else?
