Tulsa State Fair: Three Final Days of Entertainment, Activities for All
Tulsa Police Detective's DNA Sample Booth
Well folks, it's the final weekend of the Tulsa State Fair and if you haven't had the opportunity to stop by, you still have time to do so.
We know we'll be sad to see the fair go over here at Channel 8 and KTUL.com. But with three more days of music, activities and food there is still so much time to be able to enjoy the sights and sounds at the fair.
And if you've already made your way to the fair, there's no reason you shouldn't head back out there before it shuts down and you have to wait until next year. Where else are you going to get all that entertainment in just one place?
So here's your run down for the next three days. As always you can find an extended list of events on the fair's website at http://www.tulsastatefair.com/
Agriculture Education: Looking to learn something new during your visit to the fair today? The Super Duty Arena will host a birthing center with livestock giving birth to an array of animals and a surgical suite, complete with surgeries being performed on livestock animals.
For Adults: Need an afternoon pick-me-up? The QuickTrip Center Lower Level will host a wine garden at the fair beginning at noon. Attendees can sample different wines from Oklahoma and buy a 2012 commemorative wine glass. After you've had your healthy dose of wine for the day, head on over to the Artisan Village with the family at the Just for Kids building to watch local artisans do their thing.
Contests: Looking for some healthy competition? Look no further, The Tulsa State Fair will be home to several different contests occurring during its 11-day run. Those attending today can take part in a cooking stacking contest, a tic tac toe contest and a pie eating contest at the Just for Kids building located on the east end of the fair in Central Park Hall. Something Different: Tulsa Police Detectives from the Tulsa Police Crime Scene unit will be present at the TPD's visitors' booth on Friday and Saturday to obtain DNA samples from as many family members of missing persons as possible. Their booth is located in the QuikTrip Center's upper level near the west end.
Grounds Entertainment: The fair also will be host to animals you may not encounter on a daily basis. Perondi's Stunt Dog Show will showcase why your pet is man's best friend while the Live Shark Encounter will feature the only traveling shark exhibit in he U.S. Attendees can also interact with various species from Down Under at the Aussie Kingdom exhibit.
