Even skeptics enjoy a little fun. And that’s just what you’ll find at the annual Honobia Bigfoot Festival on October 5-6 in Honobia, Oklahoma. La Flore County—where Honobia is located—is considered a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings in Oklahoma, one of the states where sightings have been reported. Signs of these occurrences include strange wood-on-wood knocks or powerful taps and vocalizations that range from whispers to whistles to thunderous roars.

Dogwood Days – Idabel Oklahoma’s Spring Fling: April 1, 2017

2019-10-23T21:40:15+00:00Event, Festival, McCurtain County, Things to do|

Arguably one of the prettiest times of the year in southeast Oklahoma, spring brings that wonderful reprieve from winter; warmer weather lets us again enjoy the outdoors without so many layers, and the region is awash in the beauty that comes with springtime blooming. And dogwood trees are an area favorite when it comes to spring blooms. Since the late 1730s, dogwood trees have been used as ornamental additions to landscaping here in the North America. Some credit Thomas Jefferson for the tree's increasing popularity in the late 1700s, as he did his best to spread these trees through his [...]

Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show: November 11-13, 2016

Most people agree: they love outdoor fall festivals. The weather is cooler, making it particularly enjoyable to be outside. The fall colors offer a beautiful backdrop and provide leaves crunching underfoot. And one can not help but realize that the year-end holidays are just around the corner, making the talented fall craft vendors your very first stop when shopping for those gifts. If you are one of those who enjoy all things "fall festival", then head to Broken Bow... and specifically the Forest Heritage Center in Beavers Bend State Park on the 2016 weekend of November 11, 12 and 13 [...]
