When the temperatures soar we all have the tendency to stay at home in the air conditioning but there are lots of fun things going on this time of year as well.  Here are some things going on around Southwestern Oklahoma.

Quartz Mountain Music Festival

This is a week long celebration.  It began on Friday, July 20th and runs through Sunday, July 29th.  It is held at the Quartz Mountain Resort in Lone Wolf. The music festival provides a world-class annual summer music festival and some of the finest regional and national musicians attend.

If you have never been to this area I highly recommend it.  The resort sits back in the mountains near a beautiful lake.  The hotel is beautiful and there is always something going on there.

Red Dirt Ride Finals

This event is being held July 27th and July 28th at at the Stephens County Fair Grounds in Duncan.  The equestrian drills showcased in this event are impressive.  The Red Dirt Ride Finals are hosted by the Oklahoma Equestrian Drill Association and are fun for the entire family.

Clinton Rodeo & Crazy Days

Head to Clinton, Oklahoma on Saturday, July 28th for a day of fun at Crazy Days & Clinton Rodeo.  Bring the entire family out to this summer festival and shop sidewalk sales and watch the parade make its way through town.  Play games and enjoy live entertainment throughout the day.  Stick around for the rodeo in the evening.

Clinton is also home to the historic Route 66 Museum so make plans to visit it as well.

Airborne Demonstration Team Open Hangar Day

Visit the historic Frederick Army Airfield at the Frederick Regional Airport on Saturday, July 28th for an exciting day of aviation and military-related displays.  You will get a glimpse of history as the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team showcase their skills.  Watch the team jumpers as they make amazing parachute jumps from a WWII style C-47 aircraft.

From Lone Wolf to Duncan; Clinton to Frederick, get out of the house this weekend and enjoy some of these activities in these surrounding communities.
