It’s that time again. Time to plan out another weekend of fun around the Oklahoma City metro. And the third annual WestFest is a good way to take advantage of what should be a warm, but more importantly, dry weekend.

Put on by the Western Avenue Association and Fat Tire Beer, WestFest has it all: multiple live musical acts, rotating food trucks, beer and merchandise vendors. The event shuts down two blocks of historic Western Avenue and lasts all day, from noon to 10 p.m.

Musicians of all varieties will perform throughout the event on two separate stages. And if you need a break from the outside, Western Avenue has several great restaurants, bars and shops to keep you busy.

Also this weekend, OKC’s Jewel Box Theatre is putting on performances of “To Kill a Mockingbird” Friday and Saturday night and a matinee on Sunday.

If last weekend rained you out, you’ll still have a chance to catch the OKC River Cruise’s Disco Cocktail Cruise.

Here are 9 other events that are happening around the metro to keep you busy this weekend.
