This weekend around the metro features an eclectic range of activities to interest just about anyone out there.

For you pet lovers though, Oklahoma City’s fourth annual pet expo is kicking off this Saturday and Sunday at the Cox Convention Center downtown. Admission is free to this sprawling event, which features an on-site adoption mega event, obedience demonstrations, discounted veterinary care and more.

The temperature this weekend is also giving us all a break. So those of you who have been cooped up indoors for the past couple of week might want to get out and catch the OKC Energy game this Saturday against the Real Monarchs.

On Saturday morning, gearheads may want to flock to the Northpark Mall, who’s playing host to their 6th Annual Coffee & Cars event.  

And as usual in the summer months, the Myriad Botanical Gardens will have their Twilight Concert Series at the Band Shell. This weekend’s show features the acoustic/jazz style of Phil Smith and the Blend Project.
