Area communities set fireworks displays

Don't want to spend your hard-earned money on fireworks, but still want that loud, glittering Fourth of July experience?

Got a few noisy ghosts following you that you'd like to get rid of?

Stick around.

The City of Norman will host its annual fireworks display at 9:45 p.m. July 4, said Bill Ulch, Norman's parks superintendent.

The annual event will take place at Reaves Park, located north of SH 9 on Jenkins Avenue between Constituion Street and Timberdell Road.

"Everything really starts about noon," Ulch said. "We'll have events, music and food beginning."

Like last year, Norman's 2007 fireworks show features made-in-Oklahoma aerial displays from Western Enterprises of Carrier.

"They are pretty impressive," Ulch said. "We hope we'll have a good crowd."

For more information, call Ulch at 366-5477.

In Moore, the city's Celebration in the Heartland begins 5 p.m. July 3 in Moore's Buck Thomas Park, 1901 NE 12th St.

The two-day event features a variety of art, crafts and food and ends with a fireworks display -- also by Western Enterprises -- at dark. For more information, call 793-5090.

In Oklahoma City, the Bricktown area will host "Fireworks Extravaganza" beginning 10 p.m. July 4, near downtown Oklahoma City.

That display, organizers say, runs for about 30 minutes and is followed by Super Freak, scheduled 10:30 p.m. to midnight.
