A nice, pleasant weekend is shaping up, with warmer-than-normal temperatures holding the typical fall weather at bay.
It will be near-perfect weather to get outside and head to the 2017 Oklahoma Regatta Festival, which kicked off Thursday night in the Boathouse District. The four-day event features kayaking, rowing, dragon boat races and whitewater rafting. There will also be food trucks, beer gardens and plenty of space to watch all of the weekend’s events.
The 52nd Annual Oklahoma Czech Festival is taking place this Saturday in Yukon. The event, always held on the first Saturday in October, attracts thousands of people and celebrates the Czech culture with food, music, dancing, traditional costumes and imported merchandise.
If you’re in Edmond, Friday night, you might want to swing by Edfest at the Farmers Market Pavilion. In its third year, this event showcases local food, music and brewers, and all of the proceeds goes to support Edmond Mobile Meals.
Also this weekend is the Paseo Arts District First Friday, with food trucks, live music and, of course, art. October is Pets on the Paseo, so feel free to bring your four-legged friends along too.
