Medicine Park celebrates 107 years

MEDICINE PARK, Okla._Medicine Park wrapped up its weekend-long birthday celebration Sunday night.

Marking 107 years as a town, music from area bands kicked off the celebration at 8:30 p.m. The town set off a 30-minute fireworks show. A dozen local vendors also lined the streets. Medicine Park Trustee Dwight Cope says the town has a rich history of bringing visitors in.

"Back then, they had a lot of live outdoor music. They had a lot of activities and a lot of events and it was always kind of a people friendly place and it has always had a spirit of its own that draws people to it," said Cope.

Senator Elmer Thomas created Medicine Park as Oklahoma's first planned tourism resort on July 4, 1908.
