TULSA — Tulsa's 2020 Folds of Honor FreedomFest has been reschedule to Labor Day due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the FreedomFest website, officials say due to the CDC's recommendations and the "uncertainty" of group gatherings, they have decided to postpone the annual Folds of Honor FreedomFest, sponsored by QuikTrip, to Labor Day, Monday Sept. 7, 2020.

Officials say the Labor Day event is pending due to the City of Tulsa's approval to issue a "special event permit."

Since 1976, River Parks Authority has produced a 4th of July celebrations full of firewords, music and fun.

"As with previous celebrations, plans are underway to activate River West Festival Park and Veterans Park with entertainment and family fun, culminating in a spectacular fireworks display shot from the 21st Street Bridge. With the change to Labor Day, Folds of Honor FreedomFest will be preceded by another Tulsa tradition, Great Raft Race. That event features rafts floating the Arkansas from Sand Springs to the Festival Park from morning to early afternoon," says the FreedomFest website.
