Looking Forward to a Fun Fall

09/30/2018

Summer in Southern Oklahoma may be on its way out the door, but Fall is just around the corner with tons of activities for everyone. Fall features some of the best opportunities of the year to get out and experience Ardmore and all Southern Oklahoma.

Ardmore is a wonderful autumn destination with plenty of events and activities. For instance, come check out Profiles and Perspectives series present by the Noble Research Institute and The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation. Taking place at the Ardmore Convention Center, this series started in 1998 with the intent to provide southern Oklahoma with interesting and thought-provoking lectures that may not otherwise be available to the region, all at no cost to the public. This season features something for everyone, from OSU President Burns Hargis teaming up with Mike Turpen to present Infotainment: Enough Sense to be Informative, Enough Nonsense to be Entertaining!? on October 4th to famous storm chaser Reed Timmer discussing the Science of Storm Chasing on October 23rd. 

Cooler weather also means it’s a great time to head downtown and take part in some fun and tasty events! It wouldn’t be fall without AMSA’s annual fundraiser, “Let’s Get Souped” featuring dozens of delicious soups at Heritage Hall October 16th from 4:30-7:30pm. Returning for the second year and rescheduled due to weather, Ardmore Main Street Authority will host the Depot District Wine Walk October 23rd from 5:30-9:00pm. The price of admission includes the opportunity for tastings from multiple wineries along Main Street. Stop during the walk and visit local downtown merchants who will remain open for the event. Then on Halloween, come Downtown and take part in the traditional Trick or Treat on Ardmore’s Main Street, providing a safe environment for kids to enjoy.

This season brings out some of the best weather and scenery of the entire year, so take advantage of the wonderful spaces and parks our area has to offer.  Also check out the fantastic events happening like the Southwest Reigning Horse Association Futurity at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum October 23-28. This futurity is an incredible event that draws competitors from across the globe each year to our community, so make it a point to come out experience this event.

Lastly, don’t forget to celebrate the fall season at our local attractions! Take the family and explore the Pumpkin Patch at Woodbine Farms to find the perfect pumpkin for your porch or take a day and experience the fun activities the Brown Ranch Hay Maze. Plan to visit the Haunted Forest at Ardmore Regional Park, October 18-20 and 25-27 and Halloween Night. 

Enjoy Fall in Ardmore!
