Miami to Celebrate City's 125th Birthday March 3rd-5th

Updated:
MIAMI, OKLAHOMA -

The city of Miami hopes to see their streets packed with people to celebrate the town's 125th birthday on March 3rd.

Amanda Davis with the Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau says "The parade is a big deal for the anniversary. If you look back in history it's one of the things that stands out.  It's what everybody remembers, that's what everybody talks about. So our goal really is to get people to engage in the parade."

The Miami CVB hopes many natives will flock back into their hometown to participate in the festivities.

Boyd says "Everyone who lives in Miami or who has grew up here, went to school here has the opportunity to come back here for a big reunion and just share memories of great times of growing up and living in Miami."

Davis says "We want to bring people in. You know, our mission is to increase revenues and to bring in new tourism dollars, one of the other things within this that we'll celebrate for the entire year is that they'll be a walking tour in Downtown Miami and it'll be done with banners."

Flags that will line the streets with historic milestones in Miami's history dating back to the towns founding in 1891.

Boyd says "It's very important to celebrate our milestones and especially when you get to some of these larger milestones, because Miami's such a great community and when you recall its history  and you go back through the decades you really see what has made Miami, Miami and why it's a such a special community."

Photos of Miami, catalogued by the Dobson Museum, through the decades will be displayed on banners during the three day event. The area's first all school reunion will also take place on Sunday at the High School.
