9 Things To Do This Weekend Around The Metro (Sept. 22-24)
It’s the start of the Fall season in Oklahoma, and hopefully the last time we’ll see temperatures in the 90s for the rest of the year. However, there is still time to take advantage of the warm weather, if you plan on doing things outside this weekend.
The 29th Annual Oklahoma Derby is going down at Remington Park this Sunday. This thoroughbred event is considered a top prep race for the Breeder’s Cup. With 10 races scheduled, there will be more than a million dollars in prize money awarded as well.
