TULSA — Oklahoma's longest running festival returns to Broken Arrow Friday.  The Rooster Days Festival is a weekend-long event offering everything from carnival rides to live music.

The festival began back in the Spring of 1931.  Its original purpose was to give farmers a place to get rid of their excess roosters.  Now it's a place where families come to have fun and eat good
Friday, people can enjoy food and rides starting at 5 p.m. There will also be seven acts performing live music; including the Broken Arrow High School Jazz Band.

On Saturday, families can get up and enjoy a parade at 10 a.m. The carnival rides and live music will begin at noon.  Rooster Days offers 13 different acts throughout the day. Starting at 6 p.m., festival goers can catch the Miss Chick pageant.

On Sunday, events start at noon, with the last live act ending at 6 p.m.

Carnival mega ride passes are $25 Friday and $30 throughout the weekend.
