Online PR News – 08-June-2010 – – The 2010 Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors at Oklahoma City to be held from June 11-15 serves to address major issues such as job creation, energy efficiency, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the state of the economy, and immigration. While these serious matters await immediate attention, the participants of this meeting have plenty of sights and sounds in Oklahoma City to soak in during their leisure time.
Savor Bricktown at the Friday Walk
Delegates to the 2010 Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors can look forward to great fun at the Bricktown entertainment district of Oklahoma City, particularly on June 11, the day of the event –‘A Taste of Bricktown.’ This event will showcase the great entertainment options of the exciting neighborhood, with its restaurants, retail stores and other destinations. Key to the development of Bricktown was the Bricktown Canal. The popular canal connects many important destinations in Bricktown, and the unique water taxis that travel through this canal are a great way to experience these attractions and watch the nightlife on the banks.
Relive the Past
One of the monuments the canal connects is the still-under-construction Centennial Land Run Monument that would become the longest bronze sculpture series in the world. It commemorates the great land run of 1889 that paved the way for settlement in Oklahoma City. Friday, June 11 would be a great day to check this out as it was 100 years before that Oklahoma’s voters chose Oklahoma City as the state’s capital. Bricktown would also be hosting the encounter between the Oklahoma City RedHawks and the Albuquerque Isotopes at the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark on June 10.
The 2010 Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors is set to be one of the best ever, mainly due to the vibrancy and hospitality of Oklahoma City and its attractions. Moreover, OKC hotels offer great value and provide shuttle services to all the important destinations of the city.
