Wet and wild fun is planned Aug. 31-Sept. 2 at OKC’s Riversport Rapids, with whitewater rafting, yard games, rides on the Big Water Bull and food from the Big Water Grill. Sundays are the perfect opportunity to head to Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown OKC for the Twilight Concert Series starting Aug. 4 with Red Dirt music from Wight Lighters; other performances include the Americana sounds of Beau Jennings and the Tigers on Aug. 11, singers/songwriters The Imaginaries on Aug. 18, and a modern symphony from Oklahoma Virtuosi on Aug. 25.

It will take about 50,000 pounds of watermelons Aug. 10 to satisfy those enjoying the Rush Springs Watermelon Festival and Rodeo, which includes games, food and wholesome fun like seed spitting contests.

On Aug. 25, the Muskogee STEAM Center and the Muskogee County 4-H club host the River Rumba Regatta, where teams create boats out of cardboard and race each other at the Three Forks Harbor.
