Get ready to spread your wings, Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma community is invited to a street party in Enid to kickoff the pre-orders for the new monarch license plate.

“At this event, our goal is to collect the first 100 pre-orders that are required for the new monarch license plate to go into production,” Marcy Jarrett, Director of Visit Enid. “If you haven’t been to Enid in a while, this is the perfect opportunity to see why we are so excited about this license plate. The launch party will be outdoors in front of our large butterfly mural that was created by the same artist as the license plate.”

Organizers say the public will be able to pre-order a license plate at the event and get a free packet of pollinator seed mix from Johnston Seed and be entered to win a print of the Enid butterfly mural signed by the artist, Rick Sinnett.

The cost of the plate is $38 with $20 from each plate benefiting The Nature Conservancy’s Pollinator Habitat Conservation and outreach efforts in Oklahoma, organizers say.

The activities for launch party-goers include face painting, Leonardo’s Children’s Museum, kids activities with Okies for Monarchs and Main Street Enid, expert gardeners with Garfield County Master Gardeners, live music by Van Damage, beer garden, and specialty kids drinks with proceeds benefiting Okies for Monarchs.

The street party begins on Friday, November 1, from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m., located on 323 South Grand Avenue, Enid.
