What is better than a hot summer day, watermelon, family time and fireworks?  Maybe finding that perfect place to watch a large fireworks display!  There are so many celebrations or festivals that honor this great holiday throughout the great state of Oklahoma.  Here are just a few we found that you might want to add to the calendar for tomorrow!

LibertyFest- Edmond

This festival is recognized by both CNN and USA Today as one of the Top 10 July 4th festivals in the nation and features Oklahoma's largest hometown 4th of July Parade.  LibertyFest should be at the top of any Independence day to-do list.  Show up for a watermelon feed, live entertainment and plenty of children's activities not to mention the HUGE fireworks show at the end of the night.  If you are not into crowds, many of our communities in Edmond- The Springs at Valencia, The Reserve at Valencia or Cascata Falls- all have a great view of the show at the end of the night.

Art in the Park: A Celebration in the Heartland- Moore

Many people recognize Moore as "Where all the tornado's go!'" This city is filled with so much more than that!  Gather up the family and head to Buck Thomas Park to see why this community is so strong.  The kids will love the giant sand pit and art tent while the adults will enjoy walking around seeing a car, truck and motorcycle show as well as vendor booths set up throughout the festival grounds.  If carnival rides are your thing, this is the place to get your fix!  The Preserve at Parkside hosted their own 4th of July parade last Friday night to kick of the holiday.

Freedom Fest- Yukon

Yukon City Park is the place to be for a children's parade, crafts and plenty of games perfect for the little ones.  The evening is filled with all things FREE!  Watermelon, ice cream and live music will keep you entertained throughout the city's popular Chisholm Trail Park.  Check out our community, The Springs at Skyline Trails, when you are in the area.  It  is the perfect place to sit by the community pool and watch the fireworks if you have spent the day at Freedom Fest and want to end the evening with family. This community has homes that are available and ready for you to call home!

These are only a few of the festivals we found.  What are some of your favorites?
