Polk Street is Amarillo's stage for local cultural events and activities. We show off here during the annual State Fair Parade. Politicians campaign and teenagers cruise here looking for a good time.
Today, Polk Street may not be the busy and prosperous street of yesteryear, but it is still a reflection of life in these United States.

Polk Street is a microcosm of United States' society. Homes, churches, schools, businesses, entertainment and government can all be found on this one street.
This street is characterized by the extremes which are typical of life in the United States. Young and old, rich and poor all work and play along this avenue.
