Gentle Thursday@Localmotion is a festival on the Depot Green in Downtown Muskogee that is designed to engage young people and their families in civics investigations. On the Depot Green people can play lawn games, enjoy food trucks, and live music while also participating in voting simulation and chalk-the-block type activities. An art show highlighting the questions, “What does America mean to you,” “How do you show your patriotism,” “Why should we vote,” or “How do you engage with our democracy?” will be held at a coffee bar located at the Green. People’s Choice art awards will be given at the end of the evening. We will also have a special exhibit at Three Rivers Museum.
