It is that wonderful time of year again, when there is a chill in the air, the days are shorter and ghouls and goblins scamper about.
Spring is officially on its way. At the OKC Home & Outdoor Living Show, get inspiration, tips and tricks from some of the nation’s experts on everything from DIY landscaping to building an outdoor kitchen. The show begins at noon on Friday at Oklahoma State Fair Park, 333 Gordon Cooper Blvd., in the Cox Pavilion and Centennial Building. Tickets are $7-$9 for adults and free for children under 12. Call (800)395-1350 or visit homeshowokc.com.
The last year has been one for the LGBTQ record books: Our state’s ban on same-sex marriage was deemed unconstitutional (pending appeal), three same-sex couples were issued licenses through the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in November and The Boom’s Gospel Brunch still hasn’t been shut down by local officials. So get your tushes out to OKC Pride’s 2014 events, beginning with a Block Party 7 p.m. Friday and concluding with the 2014 Pride Parade 6 p.m. Sunday. It all goes down on, er, at the NW 39th Street Enclave around 39th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Admission is free. Visit okcpride.org.
