So you’ve winterized your swimming pool and the backyard is quieting down. Now what? There are lots of great family activities this fall in Oklahoma. Here’s a guide to family-friendly events in and around Tulsa in November.
One of the best things to do with family and friends is to get outside to enjoy the beauty of Oklahoma. The Keystone Ancient Forest in Sand Springs is a beautiful trail system with forested areas, rock formations, and lakes. A new scenic one-mile trail is open for the fall and winter that is “more physically challenging and leaves the hiker with a much stronger sense of what this part of Oklahoma and Sand Springs used to look and feel like… .”
The first week of November, from the 4th through the 9th, the Pinto Horse Association of America presents the Color Breed Congress in Tulsa at Expo Square. Four breeds of horses will be exhibited: Pinto, Palomino, Appaloosa, and American Buckskin. This equine competition attracts the best horse handlers in the country for these breeds.
