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.

2019-10-23T21:26:23+00:00Broken Bow, Nature, River activity|

Learn to Paddleboard this Summer at Broken Bow Lake

2019-10-23T21:33:48+00:00Nature, Things to do|

Always wanted to learn to surf, but find yourself landlocked? Why not try the ancient, flat-water version of the surfboard? Paddleboarding is becoming more and more popular in mainland U.S. as both a sport and leisure activity. Back in ancient times, the Hawaiian kings would ride olo surfboards. These very long, thick, narrow boards were finless, and usually built from wiliwili wood: a low-density wood from a flowering tree in the pea family, native to Hawaii. Olo would range in length from 12-17 feet long (and thought to have reached lengths of up to 25 feet), and were made approximately [...]

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 [...]
