The little town of Okemah had a small park devoted to Woody Guthrie set between two tall buildings. I was disappointed the light wasn't good for photos but I wasn't about to wait till noon for the sun to shine down upon Woody. I mean, there wasn't anything at all to do in Okemah, believe me.
Every July the town holds the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.
I bet there is a lot to do then.
You too can donate and have your name on a brick of Woody's pedestal. I never saw Woody perform. In fact I would not have known about Woody if I hadn't been a Bob Dylan fan. Maybe in time I would have because of his son Arlo Guthrie. See his name in with the rest of the Guthrie family? I did see Arlo perform. It happened to be the one time he chose not to do his Alice's Restaurant Massacree song. Was I ever disappointed? You don't have to ask.
There was this bronze plaque all about Woody set high upon another piece of brickwork. It was difficult to get a photo of it without it looking like you are reading the opening story line to Star Wars.
