On Saturday April 3rd 2012, Oklahoma State Penitentiary held an Easter celebration on the prison grounds for over 150 children and family members of Oklahoma State Penitentiary employees.

Children were able to enjoy time with the Easter bunny as well as have an Easter egg hunt, pony rides, a petting zoo and various games. Hot dogs, lemonade and nachos were served up to fuel the kids while they participated in the activities.


All the children went home with a toy and over $100.00 in prizes were given away.

 Interestingly, this is just one of many family oriented events that the Oklahoma State Penitentiary holds on the prison grounds and they are always a welcome event for the hard working employees.

The event was organized and presented by the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office, Jackie Brannon Correctional Center and the Central Transportation Unit.
