They say it’s better late than never, so why not roll out this week’s #News9Events list with still plenty of time to plan out an incredible weekend?
Most eyeballs around the state will be glued to the television; with OSU facing off against South Alabama, Friday night, and OU squaring up against Ohio State, Saturday night. But if you’re looking for something to do before, or after, the big games, there are several great events taking place in and around the metro.
Banjo Fest 2017 will be going on all weekend at the American Banjo Museum, located in Bricktown. This will also be your last chance to go see The Little Mermaid live at Oklahoma City’s Civic Center Music Hall. The show’s run ends this Sunday.
