TULSA, Okla. — Sept. 18 marks Tulsa's sixth annual 918 day.

Sept. 18 or 9/18 references Tulsa's area code and is a day for Tulsans to show some love for their hometown.

This year's theme is "The Story of Tulsa" which honors our city's past as we continue to write the next chapter of our history, said the event's organizers.

To celebrate, Mayor GT Bynum is touring the city starting at 9:18 a.m.

Each hour after that, Bynum will go to different historical and influential locations around town and document his journey on Facebook.

The city of Tulsa also put together a file of social media images for Tulsans to show their support.
