Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Traditions '91 _ an Oklahoma Folklife Celebration will have its second outing Oct. 18, 19 and 21 in the Myriad Gardens downtown. Honorary chairs will be former Oklahoma Gov. George Nigh and his wife, Donna. He was governor when the first free festival was held.

Serving as general chairman for the 1991 version are Wayne and Helen Von Feldt.

Traditions '91 is a statewide event honoring Oklahoma's master traditional artists who will demonstrate the state's unique heritage. The free festival will feature music, art, displays, craft making, visual performances and a variety of foods.

Sponsors are the Oklahoma Folklife Council, the State Arts Council of Oklahoma and the City of Oklahoma City.

At the first Traditions, Oklahomans representing many countries manned booths to display their native crafts and foods. Out in the gardens, one tent featured dairy animals and processing while another showed horse shoeing. It was interesting and fun strolling from tent to tent. . .
