The Rink Gallery/Magic Show OKC

Rockwell and 32nd street in Oklahoma City you will find a great afternoon of entertainment.
We enjoyed a FREE Magic Show, FREE Live Music, FREE Food and a great time looking at all of the neat stuff at the Rink Gallery. It is a huge building filled to the brim with all sorts of things. There was furniture, antiques, collectors items, decorator items, clothing, you name it!
Bill Crawford performed his wonderful feats of magic,  told funny stories and just totally entertained us! Bill is a certified master magician, motivational and after-dinner speaker. He is the minister of the First Christian Church in Tecumseh, Oklahoma.  Bill also has a new book out, MYSTERIES OF ILLUSION that is a fun and entertaining collection of five short stories centering around a cigar-smoking magician who finds himself doubling as a detective in a wide variety of puzzling events. You can check on line at Barnes and Noble to find a copy of the book.
After the show Bill entertained us some more, with stories about when he and our State Representative Harold Wright were younger! I could truly envision Harold and Bill learning to eat fire.  Harold also performed magic acts, he and Bill did some shows together, now Harold works magic at the state
I was having a hard time taking photos and trying to clap at the same time. Bill is only there at 3:00 pm on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month. Try to mark your calendar and check out the Rink Gallery and the Free Magic Show, Free Live Music, and Free Food.
Bill Crawford was the Counselor at the School for the Blind when my husband was 14 years old in high school. They have known each other for nearly 48 years! That is pretty magic too!
