“We want to celebrate the birth of our great nation and recognize the essential Heroes of America that are so vital to our country,” said Lee Bayless, Event Center Manager. “With our nation facing so many difficulties this year, we wanted to offer everybody a chance to just enjoy the fireworks and unwind from all of the current pressures of the world.”
Due to COVID-19 and CDC social distancing guidelines, guests are requested to bring their own blankets and chairs to set up their own “Personal Party Space” near their parked vehicle and to refrain from gathering in groups of more than 10 people.

another outstanding event for southwest Oklahoma. Our thanks go out to the Fort Sill Apache Tribe and the team members of Apache Casino Hotel for hosting this great celebration on July 4th.”
