Rooster Days

One of the biggest festivals around, Rooster Days is what evolved from early citywide markets the city used to have prior to the Great Depression. People came to Central Park on Main Street to sell their excess livestock to the highest bidder. Nowadays, people are not selling livestock, but the festival lives on. It has become more of a county fair, with rides, games, food, and more. You can still check out the stockyards if you want to see some prize pigs and other live animals, but the real attraction is the deep-fried Snickers bars.

History of Broken Arr

Thanks to a very thorough Broken Arrow Historical Society, today residents are able to trace the town’s history all the way to the small river outpost that it was almost 200 years ago. Originally a creek community that survived by farming the land, the western expansion in the late 1800s brought the railroad through the area, where things began to change rapidly from then on. Slow growth led to more people moving into the area and, before long, the population swelled from a measly 10,000 people to more than 75,000 by the year 2000.
