Mayor of Tulsa: All restaurant and bar workers are required to put on masks for native information

Celebrate July fourth on Friday night with this sixth annual event sponsored by the Bridge Church of Bixby. It has become one of the bigger events in the area, but don’t look for the plethora of grocery vendors, live music, kids’ fun zones, and patriotic events over the years.

Instead, look for a couple of 7 p.m. food trucks and fireworks that go off at around 9.45 p.m. on Friday at the Bentley Sports Complex, 8505 E. 148th St.

“We want it to be hopeful for the church and an opportunity to celebrate our nation and our freedom,” said Kim Juarez, associate pastor of Bridge Church.

“I think people are in desperate need of help right now and it’s a big distraction from everything else. So let’s focus on something good for a while. We don’t want this pandemic to define what our country is about.”

She had wondered how many might show up. But that was before more than 1,000 people came to Bixby for a baseball tournament in June.

“I think we’re expecting a good crowd so people should bring their garden chairs and frisbees and have a good time,” Juarez said. “We don’t put marks six feet or anything. People know what to do, and if they want to wear masks, that’s up to them. But it’s recommended.”
