TULSA, Oklahoma -

Remember when you were a kid and had more fun playing with a box than whatever was inside?

Performers with Australia's Polyglot Theater are bringing that magic back.

"We Built This City" is a temporary interactive play space set up at Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa at Brady Street and Boston Avenue.

About 4,000 cardboard boxes are in the park for kids to build whatever they want.

"They work together to create a community, to create a city," said "Sprocket," a performer with the theater. "They get to knock it down they get to put it back up again."

They've been putting this show on for 12 years.

Sunday is the last day, and once the kids build one final cityscape, they'll get to demolish it.

The exhibit is open to the public during the following times:

Friday: 11 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m.

Saturday: 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.

Sunday: 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
