Happy Fourth of July! Where are the fireworks?

Wondering where to watch fireworks this Fourth of July in Osage County?

Consider Pomona State Park, where Friends of Pomona State Park have scheduled a fireworks watch party at the front entrance to the park.

The fireworks will begin at dark, and will be shot from Lamont Hill Resort, across the road from the state park entrance. Spectators can park on the nearby roads, or join the watch party in the park. The Friends will pass out glow in the dark goodies and offer refreshments for sale, beginning at 5 p.m. All visitors are advised that no fireworks are allowed in the state park.

The park’s marina will also host activities during the weekend, with live bands playing 8-10 p.m. July 2, and 7:30-10:30 p.m. July 3, at the marina. Sunday afternoon, beginning at 4:45 p.m. will be the annual Fourth of July patriotic boat parade. In addition, a variety of food trucks is scheduled to be at the marina during the weekend. Boaters on the lake and anyone near Pomona’s north shore might also be able to see a scheduled fireworks show at Royal Pines subdivision on the Fourth.

Overbrook is another place to watch fireworks on the Fourth. The city is holding its annual Independence Day celebration, starting with a kids bike parade in the morning and ending with the fireworks finale at the City Lake at dark. Parking is available at the ball diamonds. Everyone is invited to walk down, sit in bleachers, or bring chairs or blankets to sit on, and to remember to practice safe social distancing. No alcohol is permitted on park grounds.

And for those who can’t get enough fireworks, next weekend, Saturday, July 10, the Osage City Chamber of Commerce is hosting a fireworks display as part of the Osage County Fair. The display will be at the Osage City fairgrounds at Jones Park, where spectators can watch from lawn chairs, their cars or the football stadium.
