QuikTrip Corporation celebrated it’s 50th anniversary by sponsoring a big bash at River Parks yesterday.
The festivities began at noon on the west bank of the Arkansas River. Leon Russell came with his band and so did Hanson. They are all from Tulsa originally.
The night ended with a giant fireworks display. The event was free to the public and the weather was absolutely gorgeous.
In my opinion, the best part of the entertainment was the trip down memory lane with a video collage of QuikTrip commercials where we all got to see Lamar and his antics again.
Thank you, Chester Cadieux, not just for yesterday’s entertainment, but also for having given us a safe clean and enjoyable place to buy gas, pop, coffee, and food for the past fifty years. We know we can count on QuikTrip to be give us a memorable experience every time we go there.
The first QuikTrip stored opened on South Peoria at 52nd Street in the Brookside area in 1958.
