It's another one of those weekends in Oklahoma City where the calendar is absolutely jam-packed with can't-miss events and great activities. So if you're looking for something to do this weekend, below are a few suggestions.

Thursday, June 5

Art After 5
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art's weekly party on the roof. With music, drinks, the current Allan Houser exhibit on the roof and a great view of downtown OKC, it's a great way to start the weekend. 
  First Thursday Artist Market at Classen Curve and Western Avenue On the Lawn
Live music, an artist market, bounce houses, caricature artists, face painters and more will fill Classen Curve. And just across Western Ave., the On the Lawn monthly summer series will have food and fun for the whole family with pop-up patios from Flips, All About Café and The Lobby Bar, a COOP Beer Tent and other food-fun and yard games.

Friday, June 6

  Red Earth Parade
The annual parade through downtown OKC will be the official opening of the 28th Red Earth Festival and will feature Native American bands, floats, honor guards, dignitaries and tribal princesses. 
  Red Earth Festival (through Saturday)
This is one of the premier events in Oklahoma City, with hundreds of American Indian artists, dancers, and performers. The festivities will be at Remington Park in the Adventure District this year and will feature a juried art market, Native American dance, live music performances, children's activities, a jewelry fashion show, food booths and culinary demonstrations.
  Paseo Arts District First Friday Gallery Walk (through Saturday)
Held on the first Friday and Saturday of every month, more than 60 artists and 17 galleries will have their works on display for you to enjoy.

Saturday, June 7

  Rock the Boat
This festival includes a full day of family-friendly activities along the Bricktown Canal, including live music, pop-up retail shops, face painting, food trucks, free water taxi rides (thanks to Downtown OKC, Inc) and more. And the fun continues into the night with live music at three different stages along the Bricktown Canal.
  Wines of the West
Another great annual event in OKC, twelve of Oklahoma's finest wineries will set up booths in businesses throughout Stockyards City. You can taste test some great wines, buy a bottle (or two) and browse local retailers as you go. This one is a ticketed event, and you obviously have to be at least 21 years of age to engage in the festivities.

Sunday, June 8
