Midtown Walkabout returns this spring on Sat., April 17. Midtown merchants will be offering in-store promotions, discounts, activities, and giveaways during their normal operating hours, in addition to free family programming throughout the district provided by the Midtown Association and Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership (DOKC). The event will feature springtime promotions and activities for those shopping, eating, and visiting the district as well as for folks at home.
Event attendees are invited to explore the vibrant neighborhood and enjoy free caricatures and balloon animals, live music, outdoor activities, and free outdoor yoga led by 405 Yoga. Bondi Bowls food truck will bring their beach vibes to the Midtown Bocce Courts, located at N.W. 9th St. and Hudson Ave., where visitors can also pick up free flowers from the Growe Flower Truck, while supplies last.
The Make Ready businesses will host their third event in conjunction with Midtown Walkabout. Make Ready Market is an outdoor market held in the parking lot of the Make Ready buildings at 220 N.W. 13th. Visitors can peruse locally made items and services including fashion, art, home goods, vintage clothing, skincare, baked goods, and coffee all in one convenient location
Downtown OKC staff will be surprising a few lucky event attendees with gift cards from Midtown businesses as a part of “Midtown Acts of Kindness,” which serves as a thank you from Midtown for visiting the district. Simply being out and about makes guests eligible to receive a gift card.
