Don’t Be Afraid To Catch Phils
Create a classic Fourth of July experience with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s Red, White, and Boom concert. Bring the family, a picnic blanket, and lawn chairs to State Fair Park for a seventy-five-minute concert conducted by Alexander Mickelthwate. To finish off the night (and fulfill the concert’s namesake), a large firework show will cap off the evening. July 3. Admission, free. (405) 842-5387 or okcphil.org.

Summer Symphony
Celebrate the Independence Day with a bang and a twang at the Fort Sill Summer Concert in Lawton. Grammy-winning artist Maren Morris—known for hit songs “My Church,” “The Middle,” and “GIRL”—performs on the bill with Texas country favorite Aaron Watson and newcomer (and Oklahoma native) Chris Bullard. But don’t run off when the music stops, because after the concert comes a spectacular fireworks show. July 4. Tickets, $25-30. (800) 999-2987 or sill.armymwr.com.

I’ll Be Your Huckleberry
Turn your Fourth of July (and maybe your teeth too) a little more blue at the fifty-second annual Huckleberry Festival in Jay. Over three days, festival-goers can celebrate America’s birthday with an array of activities including the Huckleberry Pageant, fun run and 5K, and a root beer “Chug-A-Lug.” There’s live entertainment and huckleberries galore—served baked, frozen, and in just about any way one could think to have them. And, of course, the City of Jay fireworks show on the evening of the Fourth are a can’t-miss event. July 4-6. Admission, free. (918) 253-8698 or jaychamber.org.

Should’ve Been A Cowboy
One of Oklahoma’s oldest and most-revered rodeos returns to Cyril this weekend. The Cyril Open Rodeo promises to amaze spectators as riders compete for buckles and prize money in ranch bronc riding, tie-down calf roping, barrel racing, and more. This rodeo features fierce competition between some of the area’s top rodeo circuit talent. July 5-6. Tickets, $7-$8. (580) 464-2678.

Koe Krazy
Come down from the Fourth of July high with a rocking concert from a Texas country star. Koe Wetzel brings his Texas country chops to the Choctaw Grand Theater at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant with hits including “Austin,” “Something to Talk About,” and “February 28, 2016.” July 6. Tickets, $43-$295. (888) 652-4628 or choctawcasinos.com.
