Skywatch Friday – Sapulpa Drone Show

I’ve heard about drone shows that use drones instead of fireworks and I have been fascinated by the idea for some time. On July 3rd we headed to the Tulsa suburb of Sapulpa to check out their drone show. They advertise it as an alternative to fireworks and suitable for small children, dogs, and people who don’t like loud noises.

Hear is a local news clip about the show

And the following are some video images of the show I captured with my phone. Sorry about the dim images. At the end of this post I have a youtube video of last year’s show as shot from a drone and has lots better video than what I captured.

Of course you have to have a flag. My videos don’t give the right impression of how big these displays are. They used 400 drones and they were pretty high up. I’ve looked at other drone shows on youtube, some of them use thousands. Most of the videos are speeded up way too much.


I’m thinking this is in honor of Chief Sapulpa, who is buried in Sapulpa.

A giant pinwheel

Ok you have to squint really hard to see this. The drones are simulating a fireworks show.

And so this is last year’s show as shot from a drone.

However you enjoy the Fourth, be safe and be nice.
