The Oklahoma Home and Garden Show is scheduled for January 21-23 this year. This is one of the first major events in Oklahoma in 2011. It might sound odd that there’s a garden show in the middle of winter, but the Home and Garden Show is one of the biggest draws this time of year. I’ve been to the show a few times in the past, and I’ve always been impressed. If you’re looking for a place to learn about turning your home or garden into something amazing, this is the place. There are more than 400 exhibitors and home/garden experts at the show, and they are all ready to help you learn what you need to create all those home projects you’ve been planning.

So the holidays are over. That should mean it’s safe to drive through intersections like Northwest Expressway and Penn, right? These two streets cross at the corner of Penn Square Mall, and traffic in the weeks before Christmas was backed up for blocks. It was the same up near Quail Springs Mall and on streets like north May, which is home to Target, Best Buy, and other large retail stores. But now it’s January, and all that traffic is gone!
But wait, just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean our streets will be back to normal. According to the Oklahoma Transportation Department, we’re in for some major construction projects…projects that are expected to last for a decade!
Once you ring in the new year, what’s next? Well, if you’re in Oklahoma City during January 2011, here are some events you may want to check out.
If you’re interested in walking in potentially cold weather, the Oklahoma City Zoo has free admission every Monday in January. Also, there’s still a few more days of Downtown in December—the lights, ice skating, and other events don’t end until January 2nd.
