Stacy Spriggs, treasurer of the Arts and Humanities Council of Owasso, is helping to plan this year’s Art in the Park series.
For more than five years, the Arts and Humanities Council of Owasso has produced the Art in the Park series. Held on the second and fourth Monday nights in June and July, the series aims to celebrate the arts and provide free summer entertainment for residents of Owasso and surrounding areas.
Although the themes for each evening have yet to be determined, each is sure to provide enjoyment for every member of the family. Past themes have included a gospel night, in which local choirs and a Christian rock band have given performances, as well as a live band night. Last year the Red Dirt Rangers, a local country band, performed for the occasion. A children’s night has been featured in the past, as well. With a balloon artist, skits and performances by children, the event was thoroughly enjoyed by Owasso youth.
A sno-cone stand will be set up all four nights of the series, and face painting and a variety of food will also be available for purchase. Different local vendors will provide food each evening. Past eateries include Chic-Fil-A, Backyard Burgers, Elmer’s BBQ, Coney Connection and Freckles.
Each evening in the series lasts from approximately 7 to 9 p.m. Art in the Park is held near the gazebo at Friendship Park, located between 86th and 96th Streets off the Owasso Expressway. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the evening.
This year’s entertainment series will be held at Friendship Park, 8300 N. Owasso Expressway.
Mark your calendars for four entertaining evenings in Owasso. Each night of the series is guaranteed to bring fun and enjoyment to Owasso.
