Make your way to Honor Heights Park to enjoy a drive along paved roadways that wind around the blooming flowers, walkways perfect for runners or birders, five lakes, a variety of picturesque ponds, a butterfly sanctuary, and a tree arboretum. The Azalea Festival not only highlights the beauty of nature in Spring, but also plays host to a parade and numerous other events. The annual Azalea Festival parade features everything from floats, antique cars, clowns, and pageant queens, to horseback riders and cyclists. In recent years, this much-loved festival has expanded to include a chili and barbecue cook-off, a 5K and fun run, a bicycle ride, garden market and plenty of live entertainment. In mid-April, the park will welcome visitors for Party in the Park, a tasting of Oklahoma food and wine in a breathtaking setting.

It will be held from 10:00am to 3:00pm along Archer Street between Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd. and Detroit Avenue.
