Guthrie is in cadence with Oklahoma's Centennial year and even Guthrie's leaders are getting involved Councilwoman Evelyn nephew and so we just having a good time in meeting people and greeting people and in the parade and all its wonderful to celebrate a hundred years of history for Allie and cherry this is not the first Oklahoma celebration she has participated in it was in 57 they were celebrating Oklahoma as 50 years as a state where she was crowned Miss semi-centennial and coming together II for the first of many centennial parades was just a star in her crown well I'm real impressed with Guthrie I think they have a lot of historical places and things to see here and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it and that's what Guthrie is all about history what started out as a water stop along the railroad tracks and then a land run office Guthrie just became Guthrie was as they say born grown Valerie Hanes is the director of the Guthrie museum complex and says while Guthrie started off small it didn't stay that way the day of the land run when that day dawned there was about 500 people here in Guthrie it was designated as the site of one of the land one of two land offices and there were a number of federal employees and railroad employees but by the evening of April 22nd 1889 Guthrie they say had a population of about 10,000 people with that many people buildings went up quickly and they weren't just wooden structures but brick buildings it was a sign of permanence of how shall I put this a business community that was here to stay that was mature and that was trustworthy now Guthrie was selected as the territorial capital before Oklahoma became a state for three years from 1907 to 19 and Gary was the capital the state capital of Oklahoma in fact the Enabling Act of 1906 has specified that Guthrie was to remain the capital until 1913 but that didn't happen with politics playing a large part a boat was taken to relocate the capital but before the last ballot was counted then Governor Charles Haskell quickly moved the state seal to Oklahoma City when governor Haskell immediately declared Oklahoma City the seat of government leaving Guthrie behind at that point Guthrie kind of went to sleep economically and the the urban renewal projects tearing down buildings and building new ones never happened here essentially creating a historical district that is now a national landmark well Guthrie has one of the largest contiguous historic districts on the National Register there's 400 square blocks it is a Victorian downtown brick buildings a lot of the original brick buildings here with the differing architectural styles that were so popular during this part of the history it's about as close as we can get to going back into the past walking into these buildings and and smelling the same smells and and feeling the same kind of feeling that the people who lived a hundred years ago had the opportunity to experience it's a past that Guthrie is using to mark Oklahoma's centennial with a unique and one-of-a-kind celebration we kicked off our centennial last November with a big parade and events in the downtown area and it was wonderful we had a lot of visitors here with Guthrie and this year we intend to do it even bigger and better now according to Allen's husband Allen Cherry it could be bigger than anyone can imagine the Centennial the way it's getting kicked off and with television and with the people that are behind it and the commissioners that are behind it mr. Allen who's in charge of special events and so forth it's gonna make it he's gonna put Oklahoma on the map now Guthrie is planning on recreating statehood day on statehood day and for the space of that one week the Oklahoma State seal will once again reside in Guthrie at the Oklahoma territorial museum
Born of the land run in 1889 and still dressed in the Victorian architecture of the 1900’s, today Guthrie stands as a national historic landmark and when it comes to celebrating the centennial, Guthrie isn’t missing a beat.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! In New Orleans the good times are perpetually rolling down Bourbon Street, which, thanks to the city’s annual Mardi Gras celebration, has quite a party animal reputation. Once you’ve soaked up the scenery of the historic French Quarter, tour the elegant Garden District and meet the colorful characters of Frenchmen Street. Experience the city’s supernatural vibe at the Voodoo Museum or by taking a guided ghost or vampire tour through taverns, alleyways, and cemeteries.
No city in North America can compete with New Orleans when it comes to culture, food, historic architecture, joie de vivre and tourism options.
The Crescent City has suffered plagues, wars, imperial regime changes and devastating floods. Yet, it always wakes up with a smile on its face. This may be because its inhabitants step to an easy beat first laid down three centuries ago. Moving at this relaxed pace, visitors are delighted by the French Creole elegance of the Vieux Carre (French Quarter) or the opulence discovered in a streetcar ride through the Garden District and Uptown.
Anytime of year find live music, amazing Creole and Cajun cuisine, fresh seafood, farmers markets, shopping, nightlife and more. During Mardi Gras season, the city becomes the world’s center. Downtown transforms into an adult playground, while parades in residential areas provide children thrilling entertainment. Each spring, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival moves the focus to the charming Gentilly area and the Fair Grounds Race Course. But no matter the time of year, New Orleans’ calendar overflows in celebration.
