COLUMN: Claremore offers plenty of fall activities | Opinion

Happy September, Claremore! School is in session, temperatures are cooling, and college football kicks off this weekend, which means we’ve officially started the fall season. I look forward to the changing leaves, outdoor activities and brilliant colors that flood our community this time of year. From the Shepherd’s Cross Pumpkin Festival to the Rogers County Fair, Claremore has plenty of activities to help you celebrate. Plus, with over 1,200 acres of fishing, hiking and mountain biking, the cooler temperatures provide a great opportunity to explore some of Claremore’s outdoor recreation offerings.

The start of autumn can also be identified by the start of a new horse racing season at Will Rogers Downs, which kicks off on September 12. in Oklahoma! We are extremely proud to be listed alongside cities such as Branson, Estes Park, Taos and Seattle as top fall tourist destinations.

Recognition like this is a prime indication that we are on the right track and that our tourism efforts are being noticed nationally. A special congratulations to Tanya Andrews and her team!

Whether it’s enjoying a festival in the Lilac District or one of the many cattle or horse shows that take place at the Claremore Expo Center, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this time of year. ‘year. I encourage you to discover the many activities our community has to offer.
