Visible for miles around, an estimated 80,000 spectators will view the Folds of Honor FreedomFest 2017 presented by QuikTrip Corporation from Veterans Park, River West Festival Park and along the Arkansas River. Spectators can experience the full effect of this patriotic celebration by tuning into radio sponsor KRMG (740 AM & 102.3 FM) during the display to listen to the accompanying musical score. For those celebrating at home, turn to KTUL Tulsa’s News Channel 8 to watch live coverage of the Fireworks Grand Finale in the opening moments of the 10 p.m. newscast. The 2017 fireworks display will be produced by Hance Pyrotechnics and staged from the 21st Street Bridge.

41st Plaza Update – Construction Complete
Thanks to our ongoing partnership with QuikTrip Corporation for its generous support for the Plaza, we’re pleased to report that QT had funded a major rehabilitation project on all the fountains. Since the Plaza was dedicated in 2009, it has been a popular feature and normal wear and tear, plus damage caused by unintended uses such as skateboarding, have taken their toll. The fountains were re-tiled, nozzles replaced or realigned, and mechanical systems updated. Thanks again to QuikTrip for all their support!
