The City of Tulsa is prepping for its second annual 918 Day celebration on September 18.
The city launched 918 Day in 2018 as a part the Resilient Tulsa Strategy -- which calls for "increasing social cohesion by facilitating connections and community-building in all corners of the city."
The theme for the 2019 celebration is "What makes Tulsa, Tulsa?"
To celebrate 918 Day, the Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Equity is holding a free, citywide scavenger hunt on September 14 and Mayor G.T. Bynum will be taking his 24-hour Tour of Tulsa on 918 Day.
Participants in the scavenger hunt will receive a special edition 918 Day t-shirt. The winning team will be announced the following week and receive a grab-bag of "Tulsa treasures" and a lunch with Mayor Bynum and Chief Resilience Officer Krystal Reyes.
Registration is required for the scavenger hunt. Teams require four members and a name.
The scavenger hunt will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon on Saturday, September 14. Participants must attend the kick-off event on September 14 at the McKeon Center for Creativity, 910 S. Boston Ave. at 9 a.m. to check-in and receive their clues. Register here: www.cityoftulsa.org/ResilientTulsa
Organizations can register their community events and businesses can register 918 Day deals and discounts on the Resilient Tulsa webpage here.
