Welcome the fall season at an Oklahoma state park event

Oklahoma state parks usher in the fall season with plenty of outdoor festivals and other events.

The smell of firewood, the sight of beautiful hues of autumn leaves, the sounds of banjos and fiddles and the taste of mouthwatering food dishes delight senses at the Beavers Bend Folk Festival and Craft Show. This annual fall affair takes place Nov. 9-11 in the Forest Heritage Center Museum at Beavers Bend State Park near Broken Bow. One of the problems this festival presents is how to fit all of the activities into three fun-filled days.

After taking in all of the unique turn-of the century arts and crafts, candle-makers, lace crafters, musical attractions, quilt displays, handmade wood items and yummy food, you might have to stay in the park a day or two longer to relax. During the festival, children stay entertained by the furry animals at the petting zoo and by listening to wild tales spun by local storytellers.

There are some great choices as you make plans for the busy weekends of events at the state parks. No matter which one you choose, you're sure to satisfy your traveling spirit.
