It’s time to start planning for your weekend right “meow”. And if you’re looking for something fun and entertaining to do, look no further than the annual OKC Cat Video Fest.

The festival will once again be taking downtown’s Myriad Gardens by "storm". Literally, because due to weather concerns, the event has been moved to Wednesday, Aug. 16.

The event, complete with food trucks, face painting, drinks, live music and more, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Cat adoptions will also be available on site.

The main show starts at 9 p.m., and features 75 minutes of the best cat videos on the internet.

Those looking for fun outdoors might have to contend with a little rain over the weekend, but outside events are still plentiful. The Oklahoma City Dodgers will be in town all weekend, facing off against the Round Rock Express Friday thru Monday.

And the Margarita Madness 5K fun run kicks off in the Boat House District Saturday afternoon.
