Scissortail Park, 300 SW 7, will host its second Night Market event from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday.
After working closely with the OKC-County Health Department and City of Oklahoma City, a new market layout has been approved to ensure proper spacing and COVID-19 protocols, according to a news release.
Vendors will be set up along the Promenade and across the entire Love’s Travel Stops Great Lawn to provide additional space for people to appropriately social distance.
Masks will be required in the shopping areas, inside the mobile boutiques, in bar service lines and in the food truck lines. Shoppers are asked to observe 6-foot social distancing recommendations and to bring their own masks to wear while participating, according to the news release.
“At Scissortail Park, we strive to offer our community safe, quality programming and events,” said Maureen Heffernan, Scissortail Park CEO, in a statement. “The Night Market was created to support local small businesses in an outdoor environment offering ample space to spread out and social distance. In order to continue to provide these types of programs at Scissortail Park, we are asking the community to assist us by adhering to the established guidelines.”
As previously reported, OKC artist collective Factory Obscura will debut Downtown Starlight, a new mobile light and sound experience, at Friday’s Scissortail Park Night Market.
Downtown Starlight is bringing Factory Obscura’s singular brand of artistic magic into downtown OKC’s best-loved spaces as well as some of its darker, overlooked corners.
As the sun sets, Downtown Starlight will begin to shine, along with an original soundtrack, surrounded by illuminated performers at Scissortail Park.
