Frontier City, 11501 N I 35 Service Rd in Oklahoma City, turns 50 this year, and celebrates this Saturday with a day full of events.

Starting at 9:30 a.m., the park offers free parking for the first 50 guests.  Admission is 50 cents before noon. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. there are giveaways at 50 minutes past the hour.

Circo de Magnifico debuts at 1:15 p.m., and has additional shows at 3:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

At 2:15 p.m., anniversary cake will be served in Fort Frontier.

And closing out the evening, KC and the Sunshine Band performs, starting at 8:30 p.m.  The park closes at 11 p.m.

I have many fond memories of visiting Frontier City as a kid — especially, the log ride — and I’d like to congratulate them on 50 years!
