Freedom Fest Festivalgoers Advised about Fireworks Safety Zone

Posted by City of Yukon on 06/19/2019

The City of Yukon’s fantastic Freedom Fest celebration draws thousands of people each year to a festival of fun and food, topped off with two spectacular fireworks shows that rival any in the state. To keep festival attendees safe, the City is advising them to observe the safety zone around the fireworks launch point.

The Fireworks shows take place at dusk the evenings of July 3 and 4, shortly following incredible concerts from Irv Wagner’s Concert Band on July 3 and the OKC Philharmonic on July 4. This year, all of City Park will be closed for a new and bigger fireworks safety shooting area, with Holly as the south border and Mulvey Pond as the north border. Freedom Trail Playground will be open, and festival goers will be able to walk through Freedom Trail Playground, Chisholm Trail Park, and to the large Gazebo area on the south end of Chisholm Trail Park. 

The safety zone will not affect the daytime activities on July 4. The zone will be blocked off later in the day; however, if you are concerned or have any questions about the safety zone, please find a Freedom Fest staff member. 

Freedom Fest is hosted by the City of Yukon. Sponsors include YNB; The Kirkpatrick Family Fund; iHeart Media; 96.1 KXY; The Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts; Wesco Insurance Services; Schwarz Paving Company; OG&E; Tony & Beth Kouba; BOK Financial Securities; Williams, Box, Forshee & Bullard, P.C.; Arvest Bank; Integris Canadian Valley Hospital; Spanish Cove Retirement Village; Smith and Turner Mortuary; BancFirst; and Yanda & Son Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
