Cool days and chilly nights look like they’re here to stay for the rest of 2017. And this weekend’s weather looks like it’ll be just right to allow for some outdoor fun in the day and indoor fun after the sun goes down.
The 3-day-long Mistletoe Market holiday shopping event has kicked off in downtown OKC’s Cox Convention Center. Featuring more than 100 vendors from Oklahoma and across the country, you will be sure to find just about anything you’ll need for this holiday season.
Also, this Sunday is the wildly popular Wizards on Western festival. Formerly the Harry Potter Festival, Wizards on Western in its first year attracted more than 20,000 patrons. The event is free to the public and offers wizard-related activities, games, merchandise and food trucks.
There will be plenty of basketball games to watch this weekend as well. The Oklahoma City Thunder will be mixing it up at Chesapeake Energy Arena twice; Friday against the Clippers and Sunday against the Mavericks. And the OU Men’s Basketball team starts their 2017 campaign against Omaha on Sunday.
