GUTHRIE -Miniature horses pull covered wagons as the parade continues. A giant barn pulled by a truck holds the Oklahoma Centennial Square dancers, twisting and twirling to the state song, “Oklahoma!”
We are over an hour into the parade now and the crowds are still thick watching the shows and floats pass by. Still to come is the OU band and the Centennial Band, which will bring up the end of the parade.
After the parade ends, everyone is invited to a large barbecue, where a slice of beef, a piece of bread and a pickle will be served, just as it was 100 years ago in celebration of statehood.
