Downtown OKC is preparing for big crowds

Downtown Oklahoma City is preparing to welcome visitors from across the country and even around the world.

This week’s Memorial Marathon playoffs, Olympic River Trials and other events will all overlap in some way, bringing a surge of business to the metro.

The downtown partnership will have fully staffed green team crews keeping the area safe and clean.

“It’s indescribable, the amount of influx that we’re going to see not only in pedestrian traffic and traffic in general, but again for the love of Oklahoma City,” said Jennifer Nakyama with Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership.

Green team crews are also trained in hospitality and can provide directions or recommendations to those unfamiliar with downtown.
