Explosions! Hell, Yes! You've got three Independence Day celebrations to choose from: River West Festival Park, Veterans Park, and the Blue Rose Café. Inflatables, bike parades, live music, and of course, fireworks.

One of a smorgasbord of artist offerings as part of the First Friday Art Crawl, Snap! Improv will be performing at AHHA from 6-8:30 pm. The family-friendly show features short sketches made up on the spot based on audience suggestions. Oh, come on -- like you haven't seen Whose Line.
Damsel in Distress. Do something you haven't done in ages: head to the Spotlight Theatre and catch The Drunkard and Olio, the longest-running play in the country. There's even a singalong that starts at 7:15pm. After that, you get to boo the bad guy. Who doesn't want to boo the bad guy? Nobody, that's who.
Get It Where You Can. We're all getting more and more health- and local-conscious. Do your part for your body and your community by hitting up the Guthrie Green Sunday Market. Better stock up, too, since the Green is closing soon for a short time for routine maintenance. If you're not flush with produce, what will you do?

That's A Really Intimidating Mascot. It's Grand Slam Saturday as Drillers Stadium opens up for the Tulsa Drillers vs. Corpus Christie Hooks. It's a night game, so your chances of bursting into flames at the ball park are a little lower.

Pre-Show. Performers headed to the Woody Guthrie Festival in Okemah make a stop at the Woody Guthrie Center for some nearly-impromptu sets. Join Audrey Auld, Annie Hays Guthrie, TV's Ronny Cox, and Ronny Elliot at the Pre-Woodyfest Noon Concerts which start, shockingly enough, at noon.

In The Name Of...Author Donna M. Johnson drops by All Souls Unitarian Church at 7pm to sign her memoir, Holy Ghost Girl. The book details her childhood growing up the daughter of traveling tent-revivalists, so you know there are some good stories.
