Labor Day Replay hit the spot.
Thousands of people spent Labor Day evening enjoying live music and fireworks at Yukon Chisholm Trail Park.
The event was a replay of the opening night of Yukon’s Freedom Fest, which was rained out.
Officials had originally hoped that the fireworks that had been planned for the July 3 event could be used on July 4. However, that was not possible.
The company responsible for the fireworks, Hance Pyrotechnics of Tahlequah, offered to replace the fireworks and put on a repeat performance.
So, too, did the night’s entertainment, Irv Wagner and his concert band. Wagner is a music professor at the University of Oklahoma.
The event drew thousands, filling the park to the brim for a 25-minute fireworks show.
The Labor Day Replay was sponsored by the city of Yukon’s Parks and Recreation Department.
