The Festival on the Green – 10/15/11

· No Comments

The Myriad Botanical Gardens and its Crystal Bridge is one of Oklahoma City’s most recognized landmarks.  The gardens have, however, been closed for the better part of the year for renovations and additions.  That’s kind of been a good thing—with the construction of the new Devon Tower so close to the gardens traffic in the area has been absolutely horrible, so there’s been no better time to close.  However, the gardens will officially reopen on October 15th with a huge Festival on the Green.  The gardens did actually reopen temporarily for the Festival of the Arts in April, but this celebration marks its return to its normal schedule.

Halloween 2011 in OKC

· No Comments

Halloween is coming up!  Many different haunted houses and other spooky events are going on this month.  I’ve covered several of them in previous years (like Haunt the Zoo, FrightFest, and the Haunted Warehouse).  This year, I’d like to highlight a couple of other events in the area.  If you want something a bit different, you might want to take a trip to nearby Lawton for the Trail of Fear or head downtown and take a ghostly “Haunt the River” cruise.
