Thousands attend Miranda Lambert's 2nd annual "Pink Friday"

By  | 

TISHOMINGO, OK -- Thousands of people from Oklahoma, Texas and beyond, poured into downtown Tishomingo to celebrate Pink Friday.

Tishomingo, Oklahoma pulled out all the stops, and partied in "pink" style.

Friday marked the one year anniversary of Miranda Lambert's Pink Pistol grand opening, and she celebrated by lighting up a bright new sign.

Thousands of people packed Main Street -- visiting local businesses, taking pictures with pink Santa and, of course, browsing The Pink Pistol.

In the first two hours, 400 people had already shopped The Pink Pistol. It takes about three hours to get through the line. But, these fans don't mind it.

"We've met a lot of nice people. It's a great little town. We're having a good time together," visitor Carol Hansen said.

"We all have Annie shirts, because the Pistol Annies. So, we each gave ourselves an Annie name. Hurricane Annie, Firecracker Annie and Orphan Annie," visitor Crystal Tanner said.

"Oh, I love it. It's been a blast. I'll be back for sure," visitor Angela Miller said.

Friday's event is expected to boost the local economy in many ways.

"It shows surrounding areas and other places what a small town can come together and do," Misty Walker said.

While Lambert's store was the focus, store manager Misty Walker says this event is about the entire community.

"We have a great little business here in town, The Pink Pistol. But, there's tons of great little businesses on the Main Street here and it's been revitalized," Walker said.

An animal adoption drive and a concert with Neal McCoy were just a few of the activities.

Lambert says she plans to make "Pink Friday" a Tishomingo tradition.
