Each year after the summer solstice, red and white striped tents start popping up along highways with huge signs and hand-painted letters: FIREWORKS!
In Sand Springs, there are several spots to shop full of shelves stacked high with bottle rockets, fountains, mortar kits, and roman candles, plus novelty items like foil-wrapped sparklers and sodium bicarbonate snakes.
Whether your family does a few sparklers in the driveway at dusk or buys the $500 pack of fireworks and has a huge celebration with friends on the lake, here’s where to shop for your Independence Day supplies around town:
Located at 308 S. 209th West Ave., Sand Springs, OK 74063
A tent bedecked with American flags and TNT flags on a gravel lot. Over a dozen tables are full of all types of fireworks and fireworks packages. The tent is operated in partnership with Queensferry Renaissance Festival, so you may be treated to some live Scottish jams when you stop by, too. The stand operators say, “Be sure to ask about the King’s Special!”
Located at 6636 SH-97 S., Sapulpa, OK 74066
Open every day from 9AM to 9PM, Sandites can find a variety of fireworks here. Some of the biggest sellers are the Family Packs, like The Biggen and Encore Presentation, and the finales like America’s Glory and Rolling Thunder. Coupons are available on the Jake’s Fireworks website.
Big Blast Fireworks
