It's quiet now, but the Grand Opening started out with a bang and hundreds of people, stayed for some great live music.

It all kicked off with a parade and then ended with a live concert. The Roots were one of the first bands to play live on stage at Tulsa's Gathering Place.

"We were wondering if we were going to dash down to the stage when they come on or if we should sit here and try to act cool," said Erma Roquemore.

"They sound just as good in person as they do on the radio," said Genasis Edwards.

Hundreds of people gathered on the Quick Trip Great Lawn for the 90-minute concert. Many Tulsans can't wait to come back for more.

"We're coming back for Kirk Franklin and we're just looking at the entire first 100 days of this awesome blowout for all of the entertainers," said Erma.

Tonight's concert is just the beginning for families and for Tulsa.

"Tulsa is growing with the times so we needed this," said Barbara Stidham.

If you missed out on Saturday's opening, there will be 100 days of events, so you still have time to celebrate the new park.
