The church Baked Goods booth and spectacular Silent Auction items are also located in the Food Tent.
The Kids’ Tent features crafts, games and activities, and outdoor inflatables. A petting zoo, bungee jump, balloon artist, pony rides, and the mechanical bull will be located on the grounds for additional kid-friendly action.
The Entertainment and Biergarten Tent will host The German-American Society Dancers and Blaskapelle Band of Tulsa, who will perform throughout the day; along with local and area entertainers, dancers, a cakewalk, Karaoke, and the VHS Blue Notes and VHS band. The OU-Texas game will be televised on a Big-Screen TV for football fans. Plenty of seating is available to enjoy the day-long entertainment, delicious food, and to take a break from visiting the vendor booths and kids’ activities.
Dozens of arts and crafts vendors will be set up both inside the parish hall and outdoors in the large parking lot. Indoor booth spaces are already booked, but plenty of outdoor booth space is available. Contact the church office for more information.
