Family Day at the Ranch
September 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
When the wind comes sweeping down the plains Saturday, kite flyers will take advantage of the breeze that sweeps across the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch.
Family Day at the Ranch, also a celebration of September’s Grandparents Day, will be Saturday, September 14, 1-3 p.m. (Kite flyers are expected at 11 a.m.). Stephanie Hunter, the Museum’s Activities and Education manager, said Tulsa Wind Flyers will join the newly formed “Hands on Historians” for kite flying along with 19th Century games and events of daily life on a pioneer ranch.
Tulsa Wind Flyers will show their skills and demonstrate the art of kite flying. There will be small kites for sale at $5 each or participants can bring their own.
Grandparents Day is special for Family Day since it has become a tradition for many of the senior population to bring their grandchildren to the Ranch on this day to share their own experiences as children and to visit the house where Will Rogers was born Nov. 4, 1879.
Family Day is open to anyone. Admission to the Birthplace Ranch, 9501 E. 380 Road, Oologah, is free (donations accepted).
