Carmen FD fireworks set July 5

Carmen Fire Department will have its annual fireworks show July 5.

The fireworks show will begin at dark (about 9:45 p.m.) in Carmen Park. Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and bug spray.

Activities will begin around 5 p.m. when first responders will sponsor a barbecue dinner at the new pavilion. They also will have homemade ice cream available.

There will be children’s games and activities available during the evening. The Oklahoma Blood Institute Bloodmobile will be there accepting donations of blood during the afternoon and evening. Following the fireworks, Jake Bowers and his band will provide music.

 The Carmen 5th of July celebration has grown over the past 15 years. It originally was an informal gathering of people who brought fireworks to the park and set them off. Over time, Carmen Fire Department began ordering fireworks and planning an improved show each year.

Donations are being accepted to keep the show going. Fire Chief Bud Jackson can be contacted at (580) 430-5427.
