(STILLWATER, Okla. July 4, 2016)  Due to the rain, City of Stillwater’s Chickasaw Boomer Blast fireworks show scheduled for Monday, July 4 will be postponed until Tuesday, July 5.

According to city organizers, Boomer Lake Park is too wet to park vehicles on the grass; however, the annual Family Fishing Tournament will take place as scheduled on Monday.

City of Stillwater PIO Sherry Fletcher said, "Other than moving the fireworks show from Monday to Tuesday, the event should be the same."

Residents are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit back and enjoy the free firework show, free inflatables and food truck vendors. Parking lots open Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and the show will start at 9:35 p.m..

Be sure to participate in the 19th Annual Family Fishing Tournament at Monday 6 a.m. that morning at Boomer Lake’s south boat ramp. Registration is at 5:30 a.m. and costs $15 per team. Teams can consist of up to four family members. There are both boat and non-boat categories.
