Weekly Arts and Entertainment Highlights (Sep 22, 2011)

As summer comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to be outside. This weekend there is no lack of opportunities to spend some time outdoors while the weather is still nice.

The Oklahoma Historical Society hosts The Civil War Reenactment at Fort Washita. It commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Confederates took control of Fort Washita in 1861, and it was given to the Chickasaw Indians after the Civil War. The fort is now registered as a National Historic Landmark. The battle reenactment begins at 1:30 on Saturday.

The El Reno Arts and History Celebration spans the weekend and features local art, living history campsites, and a classic car show. Hoppy Niles and The One Armed Bandits take the stage for a Saturday night concert at the festival grounds on Lake El Reno.

Children dress up as fairies and other magical creatures for The Fairy Ball in the Paseo Arts District, taking place on Saturday night. Homemade costumes, music, and imagination trademark the event, bringing a close summer in the Paseo. Fairy Green hosts the ball, just past the Paseo Grill.

Science Museum Oklahoma performs “Science of Wow!” at the Oklahoma State Fair. The shows are 30 minutes long, and feature experiments such as Vortex Cannon, Dust of Doom, and the Woosh Bottle. “Science of Wow!” presents science in a new light by highlighting ordinary things that are overlooked by most everyone. The Fair and “Science of Wow!” end on Sunday the 25th.

There are also several theatre and music performances this weekend, including The Secret Garden at The Sooner Theater and Electric Six at The Opolis.
