Midtown Walkabout: Enjoy a Fun-Filled Day in Midtown
Spring is in the air, and what better way to welcome it than by taking part in the spring Midtown Walkabout? This annual event is a celebration of all that Midtown has to offer, from its welcoming bars and restaurants to its vibrant local shops. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 15th from 12-4pm, and promises to be a fun-filled day out for the whole family.
The spring Midtown Walkabout is a great opportunity to explore Midtown’s unique and locally-driven community. You’ll find a wide range of over 40 local businesses offering special promotions and discounts, as well as live music and entertainment throughout the day. From free fitness classes to a pop-up market, there’s something for everyone to discover.
One of the highlights of this year’s spring Walkabout will be the Pop-Up Market hosted by the Independent Shopkeepers Association on the NW corner of 10th and Hudson. Stop by and shop for local goods at the Market from 11am-5pm. If you’re looking for more excitement, the Spring Midtown Walkabout also features a variety of programming and performances throughout the district. From street performers to chalk artists, there’s always something to see and experience. While exploring Midtown, you’ll find live music, a caricature artist offering free drawings, Curbside Flowers handing out free mini bouquets while supplies last, free face painting, and much more.
“Of course, any time of year people can walk around and enjoy the many businesses that make Midtown special, but the best thing about Midtown Walkabout is the chance to do it among others,” said Kristen Vails, Director of Place Management for Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership. “With more people in Midtown, you have the chance to bump into friends you haven’t seen in a while. For parents, knowing there are kids activities nearby to hold the kids over while you enjoy a beverage. Even if you aren’t feeling particularly social that day, a way to be among others without making plans. The beauty is that you can make the day what you want it to be, all while supporting local business.”
Whether you’re a longtime resident or just visiting, the Spring Midtown Walkabout is the perfect way to discover all that Midtown has to offer. So mark your calendars for Saturday, April 15th from 12-4pm, and come enjoy a fun-filled day out in Midtown. We can’t wait to see you there!
