Scales and Tails
I’m a mermaid, you’re a mermaid, we’re all mermaids! The Oklahoma Aquarium invites all mermaids to participate in a night full of aquatic life, Tulsa boutique shopping, and more at their Mermaids’ Night Out. Dress your scales up or get a mer-makeover at the event. The first one hundred visitors will even receive a mermaid bag filled with “shimmering jewels and sparkle.” July 31. Admission, Free for aquarium members, $13-$17 for non-members. okaquarium.org
Bring your lightsaber and Lando capes to the JediOKC Car Show benefitting children's mental health.
These Are the Cars You’re Looking For
AT-ATs? Landspeeders? TIE Fighters? A Jedi craves not these things. But if you want a look at some automobiles fit for a galaxy far, far away, head to Moore for the inaugural JediOKC Car Show to raise awareness for children’s mental health. For nearly two decades this group has provided new coats and shoes for children at Integris Mental Health Spencer. So you can “force” yourself to see some cool cars and dine with local food trucks to help a community in need. August 1. Admission, Free. jediokccarshow.com
Paper? Check. Pencils? Check. A one-of-a-kind homemade back-to-school item? Check that off at the Elk City Convention Center where the Outback Market provides shoppers with products they never knew they needed. Browse local vendors’ homemade arts and crafts supplies for cool finds for the kids and maybe some goat soap or a nifty new knife for yourself.. August 1-2. Admission, Free. facebook.com
