OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The 100-year-story of Oklahoma will be showcased at the Epcot Center's 12th international food and wine festival in Florida. An estimated 1.5 million people will visit the festival, Sept. 28-Nov. 11, giving Oklahoma unparalleled exposure in the year of its centennial.

Jim MacPhee, Epcot vice-president, said Oklahoma will be the first state with such an exhibit featured at the festival, which draws visitors from around the world.

The festival allows Epcot guests to sample wines and food from around the world and also features paintings from artists from China, Italy, France and other countries.
