WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) — Former President George W. Bush is scheduled to visit Woodward during its "Let Freedom Ring" celebration over Fourth of July weekend.
The Woodward Tourism and Convention Bureau announced Wednesday that Bush would speak at the dedication of Crystal Beach Park, which has undergone major renovations for its 80th anniversary.
The tourism bureau's executive director, Jim Curtiss, says Bush will speak on Independence Day. More details are to be revealed at a news conference Monday.
The "Let Freedom Ring" celebration is also to include concerts from country artists including Asleep at the Wheel, Sawyer Brown, Marty Stuart and Tanya Tucker.
That's just about as American a scene as I can imagine. George W. Bush, dedicating a park, in Small-Town, USA. All it needs is a whistling President taking a small boy down to the fishin' hole. Maybe they'll sing "Let the Eagle Soar". Maybe they'll go for a ride on the waterboard when done.
