So Many Good Boys

The pandemic was hard on all of us . . . except dogs. They were overjoyed that their humans were home a lot more often, sometimes for weeks at a time. But with many people returning to the office, man’s best friend has something new to look forward to: the Summer Canine Olympics. Held in the Bennett Event Center at the Oklahoma State Fair Park, this paws-itively bark-worthy gathering sees owners and dogs compete in obedience, tricks, scent work, and more. June 29-July 3. Admission, free. oksummercanineolympics.com

Welcome Home

Dance the night away, and the next night, and the night after that, and some of the next day, too, at the Pawnee Indian Veterans Homecoming in Pawnee. This annual event honors veterans and contributes to Native American culture with four days of powwow activities for every age. Make a trip of it with on-site primitive camping, June 30-July 3. Admission, free. facebook.com

Wet and Wild

Get in the summer spirit in lovely Haskell during Haskell Lakefest. Fly a kite, try your legs in a sack race, and watch the kids compete in a fishing derby and a horseshoe tournament. It’s fun for the whole family with summer games, shopping, and plenty of food vendors selling tasty treats for an impromptu picnic. Stick around until dark to catch the fireworks show. July 2. Admission, free. townofhaskell.org

I’ll Be Your Huckleberry

For those who tired of their parents saying, “Don’t eat something you picked up,” might we suggest a stop the fifty-fifth annual Huckleberry Festival in Jay? Huckleberries still grow wild in the area and can make for some fine treats. Taste for yourself with plenty of homemade goods for sale including huckleberry lemonade and an auction for huckleberry pies. But there’s more fun than just the food, so grab the family for a water balloon relay, a turtle derby, and a root beer chug-a-lug contest. And in Jay’s downtown square, grab some free ice cream with huckleberry sauce until it runs out. July 2-3. Admission, free. jaychamber.com
