Editors’ picks … What to see and do in T-Town this month.



Day Trip

O ye lads and ladies …
Journey back in time to the 16th century and be immersed in the grandeur of Renaissance England.

The Castle of Muskogee opens its mythical “Castleton” hamlet for the 14th annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival May 2-3, 8-10, 16-17, 23-25 and 30-31.

The event features more than 500 costumed villagers (including a king and queen), stage and street performers, live jousting, jugglers, falconers, a living chess match and tree-covered villages, as well as food and children’s activities.
10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. The Castle of Muskogee, 3400 Fern Mountain Road. Various prices. Call (918) 687-3625 or visit www.okcastle.com.


Sweet Baby James
Get your groove on and head to the Brady Theater to hear music legend James Taylor. The multi-Grammy Award-winning singer/guitarist and composer and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member swings through Tulsa May 4 on his current tour.

How many of Taylor’s hits can you name? There’s “Fire and Rain,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” “How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved by You),” “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” “Shower the People,” “Carolina on My Mind,” “Handy Man” and many more.

It’s a dog’s world
Trying to teach your four-legged best friend some new tricks?

Tulsa Dog Training Club presents its spring American Kennel Club Agility Trials May 29-31 at Expo Square.
During the three-day event, watch dogs in three classes participate in timed runs, distance challenges, dog walks and obstacle courses (A-frames, teeters, tires, tunnels, weaves and jumps).

“It’s a lot of fun to watch and run,” says Chris Hatchett, Tulsa event director.
8 a.m.-4 p.m. Ford Truck Arena, Expo Square, 4145 E. 21st St. Call 744-1113 or visit www.exposquare.com.


Something to crow about
Broken Arrow’s Rooster Days Festival is back to celebrate another year with an entire weekend of carnival fun. The annual celebration runs from May 7-10, with the Rooster Days parade marching down Main Street on Saturday morning. This year’s festival is sure to entertain, with a variety of live music, fried foods, rides and a petting zoo.
Call 251-1518 or visit www.brokenarrowchamber.com.


Germanfest
Is your mouth watering for bratwurst, Polish sausage, sauerkraut or schnitzel? Are you in the mood to polka?

Get a taste of old Bavaria at the sixth annual Germanfest May 1-3. All activities take place at the German American Society of Tulsa headquarters.

For three days, you will be treated to food, live entertainment, a German market, folk dancing and polka bands. You can take the kids, too.
10 a.m.-9 p.m., Friday, Saturday; noon-5 p.m., Sunday. German American Society of Tulsa, 1429 Terrace Drive. Free. Visit www.gastulsa.org.


Bedlam baseball
It’s OU-OSU bedlam time — for baseball, that is.

And whether you root for the crimson and cream or the orange and black, you only have to go to Drillers Stadium May 8 to see your team win.
7:35 p.m. Drillers Stadium, 4802 E. 15th St. Call 744-5901 or visit www.soonersports.com or www.okstate.com.

Make a Promise
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation presents its gala this year with a brand-new name, “The Promise Ball,” which will take place May 9.

Honorees are Gov. Brad and Kim Henry and gala chairs are Arlo and Barbara DeKraai.

The fund-raising goal for this year is $1 million, dedicated to the Artificial Pancreas Research Program. The event will include dinner and silent and live auctions.
5:30 p.m. Renaissance Tulsa Hotel and Convention Center, 6808 S. 107th E. Ave. $200, tickets; sponsorships, $2,500-$25,000. Call Rebekah Garrett, 481-5807; e-mail Tulsa@jdrf.org; or visit www.jdrf.org.

The lion sleeps tonight
You have visited the Tulsa Zoo during the day, but have you ever wondered which animals stay awake all night, and what they do?

Now’s your chance to find out.

Tulsa Zoo presents “Night Prowl” May 15, a family adventure for all ages. The event includes a guided tour and hike.
7-9:30 p.m. 6421 E. 36th St. N. $10, zoo non-members; $9, associate-Ostrich members; $7, Snow Leopard and above memberships. Call 669-6600 or visit www.tulsazoo.org.

Spring in the Square
Are you still working on your spring garden?

If you need a few more bedding plants, some ideas or just some horticulture advice from the professionals, then make plans to attend Utica Square’s Spring in the Garden May 16.

You can tour Utica Square flowerbeds in bloom, purchase flowers, attend seminars in the garden area, participate in a photography contest and enter giveaways.
10 a.m.-3 p.m. Utica Square, East 21st Street and South Utica Avenue. Visit www.uticasquare.com.

Fore!
Practice your swing, because you’ll soon have an opportunity to show it off. The annual Tulsa County Bar Foundation Inc. Charity Golf Tournament will be here May 18. And you don’t have to be a lawyer to participate.

Proceeds benefit Disabled American Veterans Tulsa Chapter 32, Blue Star Mothers Tulsa Chapter 1 and TCBF community outreach programs.

Entry fee is $100 for attorneys who have practiced three years or less, and $125 for all other players. The four-person scramble format is 18-hole stroke play. Proper golf attire is required.
10 a.m., registration; 11 a.m., lunch; noon, shotgun start. MeadowBrook Golf & Country Club, 9300 E. 81st St. S. Call Lupe Latimer, 584-5243, or visit www.tulsabar.com.

Music at the Mansion
Ah, an afternoon of soothing piano duets in one of Tulsa’s venerable oil baron mansions couldn’t sound more inviting.

Tulsa Historical Society, housed at the Travis Mansion, presents pianists Dr. Tamerlane Rozsa and Dorothy McFadden in a free concert as part of its “Music at the Mansion” series May 21.

The concert will feature classical scores written by composer Max Reger.
1:30 p.m. Tulsa Historical Society, Travis Mansion, 2445 S. Peoria Ave. Free admission. Call 712-9484.
