(TULSA, Okla.) “FreedomFest”, an annual 4th of July celebration, has been postponed to slow the spread of Coronavirus, organizers announced Tuesday. “Due to CDC recommendations to prevent spreading COVID-19, and uncertainty about large public gatherings in the near term, the annual Folds of Honor FreedomFest presented by QuikTrip, originally scheduled for July 4, 2020, has been rescheduled for Labor Day, on Monday, September 7, 2020 and will happen in conjunction with the Tulsa's Great Raft Race,” River Parks poster on social media. “The Labor Day rescheduled date is pending the City of Tulsa’s approval to issue a special event permit, which is currently on hold in the interest of public health and safety. “Since 1976 River Parks Authority has produced a July 4th Independence Day celebration culminating in a fireworks display from the 21st Street bridge on the riverfront, thanks to sponsorships from our community’s generous business and philanthropic communities, along with donations from hundreds of Tulsans and additional support from Tulsa County and City of Tulsa. The event’s major sponsors were unanimous in their desire to keep FreedomFest on the calendar for 2020 to celebrate our nation’s independence and honor America’s service members, whose sacrifices continue to defend and protect our country. Please visit www.freedomfesttulsa.com for updates moving forward. Details about the rescheduled event will be shared later this summer.”
