A Trip To The Oldest Festival In Oklahoma Will Delight You In The Best Way Possible
While our recent weather has felt more like winter than spring, you can rest assured May will be warm enough to enjoy the outdoors. One event you won’t want to miss in May is Rooster Days – the oldest festival in the state. There will be plenty to eat, plenty to do, and plenty of old-fashioned fun for the whole family.
Mark your calendars for May 10-13, 2018, for the 87th Rooster Days celebration in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. This year it will be held at Central Park at 1500 South Main Street.
As the oldest continually running festival in Oklahoma, it's full of history dating back to the 1930s. Although you won't find 5,000 live roosters roaming around like the inaugural festival, you'll still see a few roosters making an appearance.
Come hungry and choose from a variety of local vendors. There will be an indoor and outdoor marketplace offering all your favorite fair-type foods.
Including a multitude of desserts and sweet goodies.
Ride passes can be purchased for all four days for a discount or you can choose just a single day pass. There are rides for kids of all ages, so bring the whole family along.
Don't miss the cornhole tournament on May 11 at 6:00 p.m. Grab your best partner and give it a try...the winning team takes home a trophy and bragging rights.
There's also an annual parade that will take place Saturday, May 12 at 10:30 a.m. Come see colorful floats, exciting dance teams, and award-winning bands along Main Street.
Runners, sign-up and join hundreds of others in the 5K or Fun Run on Saturday, May 12 at 8:00 a.m.
If you just want to take it easy, there's plenty of shopping opportunities. Buy some Oklahoma swag or handmade gifts from one of the vendors.
Throughout the festival there will also be a multitude of local talent performing on stage.
