Organizers release full schedule for grand opening of Scissortail Park

OKLAHOMA CITY -In a few weeks, Oklahomans will celebrate the grand opening of a new park with a weekend of great music and delicious food.

On Sept. 27, guests will head to the new Scissortail Park for a free concert by Kings of Leon. The incredible music continues on Sept. 28 with performances by the Billy Jones Band, and Markus James and the Wassonrai.

If classical music is more of your style, head to Scissortail Park on Sunday, Sept. 29.

All of the concerts are free and open to the public.

“Our team at Scissortail Park has done a colossal job creating an exceptional weekend full of celebratory fun for everyone,” said Maureen Heffernan, president and CEO of Scissortail Park Foundation. “We invite and welcome everyone to discover the new Park that everyone helped to build through the MAPS 3 program.  Be a part of this historic and memorable weekend in Oklahoma City.”

In addition to the concerts, visitors can take part in yoga, Zumba, pedal boat rentals, local food trucks, a sports zone, art installations, dance performances and fireworks.

Organizers say if you park in an EMBARK lot, you can save your ticket and ride the OKC streetcar for free.
