The shuttle service has been sponsored by Crown Energy and RDMGtv. Mike Kennedy said "we want to make getting to and from the event as easy as possible". "By being able to park downtown, then rider the shuttle to the park, it will decrease congestion, and make it easier to enter and exit the park." We are posting the shuttle route below. A shuttle can be expected about every 10 to 15 minutes along the route. Shuttles will hold up to 30 people.
Places you may consider parking on the shuttle route Downtown are as follows: Broadway Street Parking spaces, Bank Of Cushing, RCB Parking Lot, City Of Cushing, just to name a few.
Close to the park these lots will be available: Youth Center Parking Lot, and First Methodist Church. The Aquatic center parking lot will be designated for handicap parking with golf cart service provided by Buffalo Rock Golf & Gun Club, to assist people moving across the park, to various activities. At the end of the event, there will be multiple church vans, in addition to the shuttle buses, that will pick up people and deliver them on the designated route. This will expedite the exit of all who came to see the fireworks show and entertainment in Memorial Park.

Water balloon fights with 4000 filled balloons, along with bounce houses for the kiddos, and food trucks for the hungry! 32" Flat Screens as prizes for the Hot Dog and Watermelon Eating Champions.
