"This year's Septemberfest is a little bittersweet since it is our last. However, it is always such a thrill to see Oklahomans of all ages and interests experiencing a sampling of the many things our great state has to offer," said Kim Henry, Oklahoma First Lady.
"The Governor and I are grateful to the many people from throughout our great state who have made Septemberfest a fall favorite, as well as the many volunteers who have dedicated their time and talents to making this one-of-a-kind event possible. "
Sponsored by the Friends of the Mansion, Septemberfest showcases Oklahoma culture, including arts, children's activities, interactive exhibits, live entertainment and storytelling.
Some of the attractions include bungee jump, hay bale maze and story time with the Governor and First Lady. Tours of the Governor's Mansion will be offered throughout the day.
