4 Centennial Events

3-DAY CENTENNIAL MINI TOUR. After twelve months of leading up to Oklahoma's 100th anniversary, Thursday through Saturday, November 15, 16 and 17, 2007, saw the culmination of all of this state's grand hoopla which sort of began at the Thanksgiving 2006 Macy's Parade in New York City. Three days of events focused on Guthrie, the state's first capitol, and Oklahoma City, its last! Lots of internet and other resources tell the tales ... I'll tell of only four on my 3-day mini tour and in the following sequence:

(1) Sunset Ceremony
Thursday 11/15/07
(2) Centennial Spectacular
Friday 11/16/07
(3) State Art Collection
Saturday 11/17/07
(4) Devon River Parade
Saturday 11/17/07
Initially, I'd thought to put all 4 items above in a single page ... but on edit I've given each page its own "space" ... so click on what you want to see, above, for my mini-whirlwind 3-Day Centennial Festivities Tour. Also, note that several YouTube videos by BPOETA of Centennial Spectacular acts are included in Part 2 of this tour.
