Photo Blog: Best of OKC 2016 winners gala!

The metro’s original, longest-running and only all-local reader’s poll wraps another successful year!

Oklahoma Gazette’s 32nd annual Best of OKC awards is complete! Winners were announced in 129 categories Aug. 23 at a tropics-themed event and blowout party inside Will Rogers Theatre and Will Rogers Lobby Bar in the heart of the Western Avenue district.

This year, Oklahoma Gazette readers cast more than 1 million votes (1,212,084, to be exact) during this year’s Best of OKC poll. That’s a record high and over two times more votes than were cast in last year’s poll. Thank you, readers, for making this the greatest Best of OKC reader’s poll in our city’s history.
