Celebrate Fall in Oklahoma City


Fall is finally here. There is a crisp chill in the air as the sun sets, the leaves are starting to bloom with color, and, Friday nights are filled with football. If you want to get out and enjoy this beautiful time of year, here are five ways to celebrate fall in Oklahoma City.

  1. Get some pumpkins. Nothing says fall quite like the orange of a pumpkin. Head to your favorite local farm for pumpkins and a lot of fun, too. Orr Family Farm is always a popular choice.
  2. Get scared. Halloween is another autumn staple, which means there is no shortage of haunted trails, houses, and other spooky events. Try the Oklahoma River Cruises’ Haunt the River trips on select weekend dates in October for something a little bit different.
  3. Head outdoors. You definitely don’t want to miss the colors of an Oklahoma autumn. Take a hike through the woods, go horseback riding, or stroll through your favorite park. Bring your camera to capture these colorful moments.
  4. Do some cooking. Whip up your favorite pumpkin recipes and try some new ones, too. Along with pumpkin, apples are a delicious fall treat.
  5. Put on a costume. Dress up the whole family in costume and go to a few Halloween parties. Head to the Boo on Bell Fall Festival in Shawnee for ghost hunting, haunted carriage rides, and more.

What is your favorite way to enjoy the fall here in Oklahoma City?

Nissan Says Many of Models Contain SPF 500 Protection

Sun SPF 500 - Hudiburg Nissan

Most people know that they need sunscreen to protect them from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays when you are enjoying a long day at the beach or the park, but did you know that you are still exposed to the sun when you are driving?

Luckily, many automakers produce vehicles with windshields that offer a degree of UV protection, but Nissan is raising the bar. According to Nissan, most of their vehicles offer UV protection for up to SPF 500 – a level that would surely protect an overwhelming majority of drivers.

This is excellent news, as not only does sun exposure cause painful burns in the short-term, but also, it can lead to early skin aging – and worse – skin cancer. Thankfully, behind the wheel of a Nissan, you are more than reasonably covered.

Oklahoma City Schools Votes to Shorten School Year

Oklahoma City Schools TeacherYour kids had something even more exciting about the end of the school this year. Oklahoma City Schools recently voted to shorten the school year.

The year was shortened by two days, from May 27th to May 25th, but it’s quite the difference to the school board. Scott Randall, the overseer for capital projects, operations, and information for Oklahoma City Schools, said that the two-day shortening saved the school district $20,000 per day.

This last-minute decision was suggested by superintendent Aurora Lora not only to save money but to help boost teacher morale. It’s not just that the teachers received two days off, but these days also were devoted to professional development.

Concerns are still present, of course. Some board members were concerned that parents would have trouble finding daycare for those days and that kids who rely on school-provided lunches wouldn’t get proper meals.

The two-day cut was part of an overall goal to cut $30 million dollars from the budget before the next school year.

The overall consensus has yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure: we know that kids loved getting out two days early.
