Celebrate Tulsa’s newest Route 66 road sign attraction at Buck Atom’s Cosmic Curious on 66 with a virtual event at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, on Facebook Live (facebook.com/buckatomson66).
Watch as Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell and owner Mary Beth Babcock flip the switch live, turning on the new 20-foot neon sign at the store, 1347 E. 11th St., for the first time.
Special guests (via video) include Rhys Martin, president of Oklahoma Route 66 Association; Karen Keith, Tulsa County commissioner; Abby Kurin, director of Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture; and Todd Sanders, owner of Roadhouse Relics.
Once it’s safe to congregate, a large event will be held to celebrate the attraction.
Shane Brown donated time to produce the Facebook Live event. The Buck Atom’s sign was designed by Sanders, fabricated locally by Encino Signs, Frederick Signs and the Neon Signtist, and electric services were supplied by Meeks Electric.
