Even the mildest of winter seasons can leave us longing for spring and summer; to be able to put away the heavy coats and jackets, the chilly weather sweaters and boots, and to be outside in the sunshine and the greenery during the warm months. This is the time of year that people like most to spend time with family and friends in the sun-drenched outdoors and is especially delightful to enjoy at a festival. One such event to look forward to is the Bixby Green Corn Festival, held annually every fourth Thursday, Friday and Saturday in June. “This is the 48th year for the Optimist Club of Bixby [a local group dedicated to the improvement of the youth of the community] to be sponsoring the event,” says Kevin Dean, Chairman. “The event itself has been around since about 1948, when Clyde Miller, a local farmer, started it after a very fruitful harvest.” Held in downtown Bixby, the festival offers food, arts and crafts, carnival rides and games, contests, and pageants for three different youth age groups, vying for the title of Little Miss and Mister Bixby.
