Plans are underway in Collinsville for the biggest Independence Day Celebration yet! This years event will take place on Saturday June, 29, 2019. The Celebration will start with the annual Independence Day Celebration Parade down Main Street beginning at 9:00 a.m. The festivities will then continue in the City Park starting at 12:00 noon.
There will be NO PARKING at the City Park except for handicapped parking near the Splash Pad. All others are encouraged to park in the Collinsville High School parking lot and ride the shuttle to the park. We will have two shuttles going back and forth between the Park and the High School all night long.
We will once again have the Inflatable Kids Zone. Featuring inflatables for the whole family from toddlers to adult.
The event is free to the public and all of the activities are free to participate in, but you may want to bring cash as we will also have Food Trucks, and many other Vendors that will be charging for their services.
The Turtle Races will begin at 4:00. Bring your turtle to the Turtle Arena and get registered and ready to race by 4:00. We will have ribbons for the winners and a souvenir for everyone that enters. It's sure to be an exciting event.
We are excited to have The Cake Lady of Collinsville on board to help us find the best Blue Ribbon Pie in Collinsville. Pies should be entered the day of the event, Saturday, June 29 between 4:45-5:00 p.m.. Judging will begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. in the evening. All contestants must bring 2 of the exact same pie. One will be judged and the other will be auctioned off to benefit Dividing Bread Ministries local food bank.
Following the Pie Auction around 6:00 p.m. the City will begin passing out FREE watermelon to everyone in the crowd. We will then have a watermelon seed spitting contest around 7:00 p.m.
Watch for more information coming about a Horseshoe Tournament and many more fun activities.
Once the sun goes down the sky will become the stage for one of the best fireworks displays in Green Country. The City of Collinsville fireworks display has become known as one of the displays you'll see in Oklahoma. Precision timing with the fireworks set to patriotic favorites playing through the sound system is the perfect way to end the day long celebration of our country's independence.
Bring the family for an Independence Day Celebration that you won't soon forget!
