GUTHRIE–Gov. Charles Haskell has been sworn in as governor, just as he was 100 years ago on this spot at the Carnegie Library.
The re-enactment ended with a children’s choir singing the state song, “Oklahoma!” People dispersed, lining the streets where the parade will begin at 11:30. As the day warms up and the parade and picnic nears, the streets are filling up with revelers, ready to celebrate the state’s 100th birthday.
People will be able to see the parade all along the route and on large TV monitors scattered along the streets. The state Tourism and Recreation Department is offering a broadcast to fill the time, interviewing locals and setting the scene for those waiting for the parade.
