Fireworks, car show coming to Claremore

CLAREMORE —

Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs and Lady Luck’s Fireworks are teaming up to bring a fun-filled evening of fireworks and entertainment to the racetrack this month. 
“This is an opportunity to bring our guests and the community together to celebrate Independence Day a little bit early,” said Megan Province, marketing manager, Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs. “We’ll have food, music, cars, fireworks and kids’ games. There is something planned for all ages.”
In addition to various food options, the event will include several activities for the kids. Children can choose from inflatables, face painting, balloons or a visit with clowns.
As the children play, families can listen to live music from River’s Edge. The country band is playing on the outdoor stage from 5 to 8 p.m.
As part of the evening’s entertainment, the Route 66 Car Club of Claremore will be displaying more than 35 classic and mixed-hobby cars, along with dirt crawlers from Green Country Offroad of Vinita.
The highlight of the evening will be a fireworks show presented by Lady Luck’s Fireworks. The fireworks dealer, in celebrating its 30th year in business, is putting on an hour-long fireworks display, which is to conclude with “an impressive finale.”
Following the fireworks show, Runnin’ on Empty will conclude the events with a free show inside the Dog Iron Saloon. Guests must be 18 or older to attend the concert.
The celebration is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 21 at the Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs. 
Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs is located three miles east of Claremore on Highway 20. For more information, visit www.cherokeecasino.com or call (918) 283-8800.
