Second Annual Music in the Park event


The City of Lawton Parks and Recreation Department will host its Second Annual Music in the Park event, in collaboration with the 77th Army Band, Sept. 14 at the Benjamin O. Davis Park at Southwest 6th and F Avenue in Downtown Lawton.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes live music, entertainment and refreshments. There is no cost to attend.

“I thought this would be great for residents at the Benjamin O. Davis High Rise and great for our citizens,” said Jan Rhodes, City of Lawton Senior Recreation coordinator and event planner. “This is a wonderful way to promote interaction between senior citizens and the community at large.”

Rhodes said the music will begin promptly at 11 a.m. There will be chairs and tables set up in shaded areas for people to listen, eat and enjoy good fellowship. It is also an opportunity to explore a bit more of Downtown Lawton, Rhodes explained.

“It is the start of the weekend and people are passing by to do some shopping or maybe they are returning from their shopping,” she said. “They can swing by another downtown location at our park for a good time!”

For additional information on this event, please call the Community Relations Office at 580.581.3301.
