NORMAN — Registration is open for this year's 89er Day Parade, which is set for April 20 in downtown Norman.
The parade commemorates April 22, 1889, the day parts of Oklahoma that now include Guthrie, Kingfisher, Oklahoma City and Norman were opened to settlement. Parade organizers have issued a call for entries that reflect this year's theme, which is “Workin' Up a Storm.”
Entries will be judged in 10 categories, including floats, roundup clubs, music and dance groups, automobiles, trucks, other vehicles, miscellaneous children, miscellaneous adults, and equestrian and other animals.
“The 89er Day Parade is a great opportunity to bring friends, families and businesses together in a festive community event that is fun for all ages,” Chairman Charles Hollingsworth said.
