Boomer Blast is a Stillwater 4th of July tradition. Independence Day in Stillwater wouldn’t be complete without ending the day Boomer Lake with the annual fireworks show.

If you plan to participate in the 19th Annual Family Fishing Tournament, registration is at 5:30am with the tournament beginning at 6am at the south boat ramp at Boomer Lake. Registration costs $15 per team, with teams consisting of up to four family members. There are both boat and non-boat categories.

There will also be free inflatables and food truck vendors before the fireworks show begins. Fireworks are illegal in the city limits, so if you want to end the day with a bang, gather your friends and family, load up your lawn chairs and blankets, and get to Boomer Lake Park early to get a good spot. Parking lots open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 9:35 p.m.

If Chickasaw Boomer Blast is rained out, the firework show will be on Tuesday, July 5, or it will be delayed until Labor Day Monday, September 5, 2016.
