April 2020

Muskogee's Honor Heights Park has been regaling Oklahomans and out-of-state visitors alike with stunning natural beauty that comes alive in spring with bursting blooms of azaleas and other flowers. The display is so stellar that it’s commemorated with the annual Azalea Festival which, despite its name, is about so much more than flowers that you’ll want to make plans to get down to Muskogee throughout the month of April for one of the most entertaining set of experiences in Green Country.
