Oh, You're Showing A Movie? Tell me about it being Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the Guthrie Green at 8:30pm and being free.
The Oklahoma Aquarium has the largest bull sharks in capitivity. Make sure you visit them in the amazing shark tunnel for Shark Week, coinciding with the Discovery Channel's annual gift to mankind of the same name.
The Colors Are Just More Muted. Like the gleefully messy Color Run, The Dirty 30 is a race you don't want to wear brand new stuff to. Billed as Oklahoma's Dirtiest Obstacle Course, the Dirty 30 gives racers the chance to get down and dirty, have a great time, and support the WATERisLIFE and OK Foster Wishes charities.

COURTESY INTERTRIBAL INDIAN CLUB OF TULSA
Honoring and Remembering. The Intertribal Indian Club of Tulsa hosts the 36th Annual Pow Wow of Champions all weekend long at the Mabee Center. It's an athletic event, it's a religious experience, it's a look at Native American culture. There will be dancing, singing, prizes and food.
Everyone Knows They Don't Actually Glitter. The Martin Regional Library invites you to test your vampire knowledge at Vampire Tracker, a look at the history and oft-tampered-with legend of vampires. You can be Team Jacob, a Lestat fan, or a Vlad the Impaler purist, and you'll find something to talk about. And learn! For ages 10-15, the fanged fun starts at 4pm.
I Went Down to the Crossroads. Cinemark Tulsa screens Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013, shot at Madison Square Garden at the festival of the same name in a one-night-only, national screening. Not only will audiences get tons of footage of Clapton, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, and others, but there's a giant dose of candid backstage moments, as well. Also showing at Cinemark Broken Arrow (and around the country), the flick starts at 7:30.
I Don't Know What a Snaffle Is, But It Totally Has Its Own Association. Horses and riders converge at Expo Square today through Sunday for the National Snaffle Bit Association World Champion Show. With tons of different riding competitions, there is something to hold the interest of just about anyone. And who doesn't love horses? Nobody, that's who. Plus, you might learn what a snaffle bit is, and you'll get to use the word "equitation" in a sentence. Probably more than once.
Dewey Races Boats? Okay, it's not an actual race, but the Bartlett Regatta Launch Party is the prelude and kick-off event for the fundraising regatta that takes place in September. Benefitting (and held at) The Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges, the launch party offers dinner, live and silent auctions, and tours of the facility. Dress nice and call ahead. It's a fundraiser, so the tickets are $75. Arkansas River not shown to actual size.
