(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / June 7, 2017) – The City of Stillwater announced today that Chickasaw Telecommunications Services will serve as the title contributor of the City’s Independence Day fireworks show. The Chickasaw Boomer Blast Fireworks Show will take place Tuesday, July 4 at Boomer Lake Park in Stillwater.

 
“We are so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to this family event,” Chickasaw Enterprise Sales Representative Kimberly Stemm said. “We stand behind our community and we champion events like this that offer a fun atmosphere for all ages.”
 
Chickasaw will contribute $5,000 to help offset the cost of the fireworks. The event itself is organized and presented by the City of Stillwater and Stillwater City Council.


This year, participants can also support the fireworks show with the Adopt a Boom program.
 
“This is an easy and fun way you and your family can help your favorite local fireworks show,” Special Events Coordinator Stephanie Kinder said. “You can adopt a boom for a child, friend, or even yourself, and that individual’s name will be recognized on our website or social media channels as a contributor of this year’s Chickasaw Boomer Blast.”
 
Applications to Adopt a Boom are accepted through Friday, June 30 and are available on the City’s website at http://stillwater.org/news/view/id/97.
 
Residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit back and enjoy the free show. Parking is free and lots open at 6:30 p.m. Lakeview Road Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic in order to accommodate pedestrians. The 20-minute show will start around 9:35 p.m.
 
In the event of inclement weather before or during the fireworks show, Chickasaw Boomer Blast will take place on Wednesday, July 5. The City of Stillwater follows a contingency plan in the event of rain, which includes assessing whether the grass parking lots are able to support the anticipated 2,000 vehicles that come to Boomer Blast each year.
 
“We’re looking forward to another successful Independence Day celebration and fireworks show for our Stillwater residents,” Mayor Gina Noble said. “Our community is fortunate to have partners like Chickasaw Telecommunications Services who, for the third year, are willing to contribute and support this event showcased in beautiful Boomer Lake Park.”

Residents can also listen to a live remote from Chickasaw Boomer Blast on Stillwater Radio KSPI Hot 93.7 FM.
 
Lake McMurtry will organize and present the Annual Family Fishing Tournament on Saturday, July 1. For more information about registration and participation, visit their website at http://www.lakemcmurtry.com/family-fishing-tournament.html.
 
“The Stillwater community is fortunate to have events like these and we are proud to be a contributor,” Stemm said.
 
The City of Stillwater would like to thank Chickasaw Telecommunications Services, Oklahoma State University, Kicker, Stillwater Medical Center, Grand River Dam Authority, The Bank N.A., OnCue, RCB Bank, Stillwater Frontier Rotary, Stillwater Professional Firefighters Local 2095, Charlie's Discount Drug and Quality Water Services for their contributions.
