The Muskogee Azalea Festival is in full bloom the entire month of April. Approximately 625 varieties of azaleas and 30,000 plants can be found among the 40 acres of gardens at Muskogee’s Honor Heights Park. Both driving tours and walking trails are available to allow you to get a glimpse of this gorgeous Sooner Space. Although this years’ harsh winter may have slowed the blooming of the azaleas the festivities will be as vibrant as ever.
On Saturday, April 12th begin the day with the 4th Annual Muskogee Run. With a choice of 15K, 5K or a 1 mile route there is a race for everyone. The event will begin at 8 a.m. among the lovely azalea gardens at Honor Heights Park. Following the Muskogee Run will be the Azalea Festival Parade in Downtown Muskogee at 11 a.m. After the run and the parade you’ll certainly work up an appetite. For just $10 for one or $15 for two you can purchase a taster kit from the Chili & BBQ Cook-Off to sample some of the delicious entries and vote for your favorite. After lunch you’re sure to find something that will interest you in the many other offerings in the quaint town of Muskogee. Here are just a few:
