The 9th annual Midnight Streak will take place at 11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10 at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, 3000 General Pershing Blvd. at State Fair Park.
Festivities for the 5K run/walk will begin at 9 p.m. with a live performance from local rock band, Full Circle. Other family activities include star gazing with the Oklahoma City Astronomy Club, and a children’s activity area where kids can come and get their face painted, as well as make some fun crafts. Taste of Soul Chicken and Waffles and Roxy’s Ice Cream trucks will be onsite, and adult beverages will be available for those over the age of 21.
The exhibition Walking, Eating, Sleeping, will remain open past normal gallery hours for Midnight Streak attendees to enjoy throughout the event.
