Tulsa Oktoberfest

Tulsa Oktoberfest

“You know, they say Tulsa has the second largest Oktoberfest in the world” was a revelation convened to me by the manager of a local CVS store a few weeks ago. I have been buying a lot of ice cream there lately and by now the folks up front know that I travel quite a bit.

Since I am spending some time in Oklahoma these days, it was time to cross that one off my list. When in Rome… Will Rogers Stampede was happening in Claremont over Memorial Day weekend so my parents and I decided to check it out. The fun started with trying to figure out exactly where it was. Their website proved to be useless in that regard and overall looked like it was designed back in the late 90’s. Not the best […]
