Tulsa State Fair

Let me first start out by saying, WOW!  Can you believe it is almost October?!?! And here in Oklahoma that means, it’s time for the

Tulsa

State

Fair!

This year they are kicking off the fair with a 5k and fun run to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Tulsa Area United Way. What awesome organizations to sponsor! This however is unlike any 5k I have ever participated in; it is called the “Corndog Classic” and you can choose to take the “Corndog Challenge” in which at each (3) water stations during the race you eat a corndog, then drink either a beer (21&older) or a lemonade, then it’s time for cotton candy. This sounds like a bad belly ache waiting to happen! But also like a ton of FUN! Plus you get to see the sites of the fair before it even opens!

 

For entertainment this year the Tulsa State Fair has a great lineup for the Oklahoma Stage, kicking it off September 27th will be Z104.5 The Edge’s Homegroan concert, followed by Randy Houser September 28th, Vertical Horizon September 29th, Eli Young Band September 30th, Jeremy Camp October 1st, Easton Corbin October 2nd, Hot Chelle Rae October 3rd, Theory of a Deadman October 4th, Keith Sweat October 5th, Breathe Carolina October 6th and Midlife Crisis October 7th. See http://www.tulsastatefair.com/ for details.

 

Another exciting attraction coming to the fair this year is Disney On Ice “Dare to Dream” which is based on the movie Tangled.
