The Azalea Festival

Starts Monday, April 1

Drought has made the work of tending the famed azaleas in Muskogee’s Honor Heights Park a challenge, but the Azalea Festival will go on in April with blooms or without. The city of Muskogee schedules a month-long spring celebration that includes the parade (April 13), car show (April 13), 5k run (April 13) barbecue cook-off (April 13) and bike ride (April 27). Visit www.cityofmuskogee.com for details and a complete schedule or just wing it and show up to see what happens. Chances are you’ll still have the picturesque backdrop for family snapshots that makes the park at Shawnee Street and 40th Street West, Muskogee, a major draw this time of the year.
