It's almost right around the corner, so I thought I'd give you all a sneak peek at some of the upcoming events for next month!
First up, the Tulsa State Fair: running Oct. 1st-11th. Normal admission is $8-10, depending on what day of the week you go, but advance tickets online are only $6.50. Also, opening night is $1 gate admission (with a special coupon from participating local Ford dealers; $5 without the coupon). See the link for other promotions going on throughout the fair's run. I LOVE the fair, and since I haven't been to Tulsa's yet, I can't wait to check out the food, rides, entertainment, livestock and exhibits!!!
Not to be outdone, Tulsa's Oktoberfest, running the weekend of Oct. 22-25th, should be just as awesome. Admission is only $5. I did go to this event while I was here visiting last year, and had the best time! I'm going to see if I can sign up for the annual "Bier Barrel Race" to be held on the 24th! Looking at the concessions they'll be having is already making my mouth water for bratwurst. There's even a map on their site you can check out.
Halloween Happenings! Have you gotten your costume yet? It's ok, me neither! I do know what we're dressing up as (keeping it a secret!), and fortunately our costumes won't be expensive. They will entail visits to both Party City and Spirit - I'm so glad they have them here in Tulsa! Now while you guys don't have the awesome theme park attractions like Halloween Horror Nights at Universal, or Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream, I hear the Haunted Castle in Muskogee is just as frightfully fun! Running Fri/Sat evenings in October, the Festival features 9 attractions on 60 acres! There are child and adult discount ticket combos available online. I went to the Renaissance Festival they had there this past spring, and if that's any indication, it will be awesome! Last but not least, this Halloween won't be complete without going to A Rocky Halloween. To be held on Halloween night at the Brady Outdoor Stage on North Main, the party gets started at 8pm with the band Crossland, to be followed at 10pm with the Rocky Horror Picture Show entertaining the masses. After that, the party will spill over at Club Majestic & The Hunt Club. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the gate. Coinciding, be sure not to miss the Brady Fall Arts Festival going on earlier in the day from 10am-6pm. To me, this sounds like Tulsa's answer to Tampa's Guavaween - one explosive street party!!!
And there you have it, so far....and any additional suggestions for upcoming events are most welcome!!! :)
