A building erected out of LEGOs? Downtown?
OK, maybe not. Maybe we’ll just go for an entire city.
As someone who spent half his childhood playing with LEGOs, it doesn’t get much cooler than this. When I first heard about this project in the planning stages, everything sounded wonderful except the location: Penn Square Mall. The idea of going to Penn Square Mall anytime between November and January is horrifying. Sorry, but the parking is a hassle and I prefer to do my shopping in locally owned stores when possible.
Why oh why, I asked, couldn’t CityScape be hosted downtown in the heart of the city? This year it’s being done right, in my humble opinion, by doing just that and using space being donated (something that didn’t happen at the mall) by the owners of 1100 N Broadway – Bob Howard and Mickey Clagg.
Believe it or not, this site has far more available parking nearby than the mall, and far more fun activities during the holidays including ice skating, snow tubing, holiday lighting and an assortment of special events in venues like Bricktown and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
CityScape is a great fit with Downtown in December, and if you want to see CityScape grow and thrive downtown in future years, then please be sure to make it one of your family’s stops this upcoming holiday season. By doing so, you’ll help make downtown even better for holiday visitors, and you’ll be supporting a great non-profit, Educare, a school in south Oklahoma City for at-risk children.
