Preparations are under way for the 15th annual Septemberfest on the grounds of the Governor's Mansion, 820 NE 23. The free family event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 10. It's the first event to be hosted by Gov. Mary Fallin, who was elected last year, and first gentleman Wade Christensen.
Septemberfest will feature a variety of activities, such as arts, children's activities, interactive exhibits, live entertainment and storytelling. To volunteer, call the United Way Volunteer Center at 523-3581 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
In addition to activities at the Governor's Mansion, visitors may enjoy free admission to the Oklahoma History Center, across NE 23 from the mansion. Septemberfest is sponsored by Friends of the Mansion, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring and preserving the Governor's Mansion.
