The T-Town Rundo Area Events This Black Friday
From a fun run to free admission, there's plenty of stuff to do today that will get you off the couch and out of your Thanksgiving food coma.
The annual Turkey Trot happens at 8:30 in downtown Tulsa. It's sponsored by Fleet Feet and is now the official kick off for Arvest Winterfest.
Winterfest returns to 3rd Street just outside the BOK Center for its fifth holiday season. The event features the state's tallest Christmas tree, an ice skating rink, carriage rides and hot cocoa. Live music acts are also scheduled for select nights.
Local stores are offering big discounts today, and the Tulsa Area Humane Society is no exception. The organization is offering half-off adoptions on animals that are mostly black in color.
Not to be outdone, the Tulsa Zoo is offering a 100% discount on tickets today. Everyone can get in for free. Zoo officials say there are also discounts on zoo membership and other items around the park.
The night will shine bright this evening near Bartlesville as the Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve switches on its Wonderland of Lights. Organizers say the grounds and buildings of Woolaroc will be covered with over 650,000 lights as the historic ranch transforms itself into a magical winter wonderland. Admission is $4 for adults and $1 for children 11 and under.
Christmas light displays continue at Rhema Bible College and Church as well as Utica Square. Admission is free.
The Gambler himself will appear tonight inside Catoosa's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Kenny Rogers is set to take the stage at The Joint. This is his third appearance at the venue. Rogers will sing his classics and lead the crowd in a holiday sing-a-long.
And finally, don't forget the movies. There's something for just about everyone playing in local theaters including: Wreck-It Ralph, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt. 2, Red Dawn, Skyfall, Flight, Life of Pi and Lincoln.
