It's that time of year again. Spring is here and we can almost, practically start daydreaming about our Fourth of July plans. Once again, Ree Drummond and The Pioneer Woman Mercantile are making Pawhuska, Oklahoma one of the best places to be in the South if you're traveling for the holiday

As announced on March 31st via Instagram, here's why you should consider ringing in Independence Day in the Sooner State: "Save the date! It's never too early to start locking in your Fourth of July plans. We are planning the best (and biggest) Independence Day celebration yet, and we'd love nothing more than to celebrate with you!!" the caption begins, featuring a series of photos from previous 4th of July holiday gatherings. "Join us this summer for our third annual all-day Patriotic Party on the Prairie! This year we'll be tripling the festivities, fireworks (if tripling is even possible, ha!), street food, vendors, and FUN! It's going to be a Fourth of July to remember, so put a big star on your calendars!" See the full post below.

Last year, the festivities were a hit, featuring Jake Hooker & The Outsiders, an old-school country-style group, as the headliners, along with several other bands, plenty of tantalizing eats, a fireworks show, and more.

We hope we can squeeze in a peek at the Drummond Ranch, grab a slice at P-Town Pizza, and catch some of those glorious Oklahoma sunsets while we're in town.
