The annual community tradition of Owasso Trail Days, hosted by the Owasso Chamber of Commerce, returns May 4-7.

The four-day festival will kick off on Thursday evening, May 4, with the Gathering on Main, which takes place along Main Street.

Coinciding with the Gathering on Main will be the Trail Days carnival, opening May 4, 6 p.m.-11, in the Owasso Public Schools Transportation parking lot near 76th Street North and Highway 169. The carnival will run all four days of Trail Days and is split into five sessions. Individuals must buy a ticket for every session that they wish to attend. There will be adult and children’s rides, carnival games, and food vendors.

Advance ride passes are available for purchase at Valley National Bank, 12401 E. 86th St. N., Bank of Oklahoma, 9580 N. Garnett Rd., McDonald’s Owasso locations, RCB Bank Owasso locations, Reasor’s Owasso locations and the Owasso Chamber of Commerce, 315 S. Cedar.

On Saturday, the Owasso High School marching band will usher in the Home and Business Expo at Tulsa Tech, 10800 N. 140th E. Ave. The parade begins at 8:30 a.m.

The Home and Business Show will take place inside Tulsa Tech from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and feature a variety of vendors.

Also taking place throughout the day on the Tulsa Tech campus will be family-friendly activities, including:

• free train rides, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., in the north parking lot;
• a visit from Partners in Prevention and McGruff the Crime Dog, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.;

Also taking place Saturday afternoon will be the End of the Rail skateboard contest at the Owasso Skate Park.

“Trail Days has always been about bringing the community together,” says Shala Bible, Owasso Chamber marketing director, who remembers attending Trail Days since she was four years old, growing up in Owasso.

“It’s a way for families to celebrate and spend time together.”
