Sallisaw Slates Pocket Park Ribbon-Cutting

Sallisaw is moving forward with its summer plans, said Marty Green, the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce.

Green said summer fun will begin at 5:30 p.m. Friday, June 19, with the ribbon-cutting for the city’s new Pocket Park, which will be followed by a dedication of the site honoring those who pitched in to make the park a success. The evening will be capped off at 6 p.m. with music by Restless Stones.

“We so appreciate everyone who has helped” getting the park ready for visitors, Green said.

The event is free, Green said, and restaurants downtown will be open so guests can order food and drinks. “This will offer good, clean family fun,” he said.

In addition to the events at the Pocket Park, Sallisaw Main Street is hosting a cruise night June 19 at 5 p.m.

The Main Street Association will also be selling their famous Indian Tacos from their pink taco trailer in front of the library beginning at 11 a.m.

Green said he has been “pleasantly surprised” by how Sallisaw has bounced back from the coronavirus pandemic. He said local businesses have reported strong sales and tax figures are up. “Thanks to everyone for spending locally” during this time, Green said.

Green also announced that the city will host its annual Independence Day fireworks Sunday, July 5, at the Sallisaw High School complex. Music will be provided by KXMX, The Mix 105.1.

“We’re looking forward to a great show,” Green said. Even if fireworks in your town have been canceled, everyone is welcome to visit Sallisaw to watch its fireworks show. “Just bring your lawn chair or blanket” and have a good time, Green said.
