TULSA, Okla. — It's that time of the year!

The first day of the annual Porter Peach Festival kicks off on Thursday and they're doing it big for their 55th year.

Starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, people who attend the festival can find arts and crafts, outdoor concerts, a petting zoo, and, of course, free peaches and ice cream.

The festivities are planned to continue through Saturday. There will be a 5K run, a car show, local music and entertainment, a parade, and so much more.

To see the full list of events, check out Porter Peach Festival's website.

The festival is of course known for its fresh peaches, but this year you’ll have to go to the orchard to buy your peaches because there aren’t enough to sell on Main Street.

February’s winter-storm and April’s late freeze destroyed most of the peach crop. They were only able to salvage about 10% of their normal yield.

“We are still selling peaches. You won’t see them in the grocery stores as people normally would, you’ll have to come out to our Orchard in Porter to purchase them.”

Livesay Orchard and Bakery are open at 8 a.m. They’re located at 39232 E 231st St. about three miles out of town.
