All year, Oklahoma City celebrates the 100th birthday of one of its most distinguished sons: novelist, writer, scholar and literary critic Ralph Ellison.
The Oklahoma History Center camp has a variety of hands-on activities each day, including scavenger hunts and crafts to help campers understand day-to-day life on the plains. This week’s culminate with Saturday’s Fourth Annual Cowboy (and Cowgirl) Roundup 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive. Call 522-3602 or visit okhistory.org.
We’re getting old, you guys. OKC is about to turn 125, but we still know how to party (with birthday cake, obviously). Locals can attend an open house 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 200 N. Walker Ave., featuring history lessons, a Spokies bike history tour, tours of City Hall and, yes, birthday cake. Admission is free. Call 297-2578 or visit okc.gov. See our 125th Anniversary weekly series story on page 28. Also, check out our Spokies story on page 43.
