Your most trusted-trusted source for all-things Oklahoma City is back with its weekly feature, TLO Weekend Radar, highlighting a few of the most promising happenings in the metro.
This weekend we are letting quite a few flags fly: to honor those who served, to celebrate those who love, and to signify those who like mornings and do stuff like swanky breakfast dates and brunch.
OKC Pride Parade & Festival
June 22 | 12 noon
NW 39th Street
While Instagram and Twitter were chock full of pride parades across the globe, Oklahoma City was waiting patiently for our go at it. It’s finally this weekend! Members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends, families, and allies will be celebrating everything that is glorious about being comfortable in your own skin, identity, and loves. Naturally, they will be celebrating them as gayly as humanly possible. Ever wondered what a grown man with a beer gut looks like in full drag makeup, dressed entirely in feather boas? Go to Pride. Seriously, though: Pride is an absolute must-attend for every human — at least once — it‘s one of the most joyful, gleeful, vibrant, enthusiastic celebrations OKC enjoys.
The Art of Brunch
June 22 | 10:30 a.m.
Campbell Art Park
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and lunch is what motivates most of us to make it to noon, then brunch is truly the meal of the gods. Join some of OKC’s hottest brunch spots at Campbell Park and really refine your brunchitude. Some of our personal favorites including Stella and Hatch will be serving up their brunchiest yummies. Hosted by Oklahoma Contemporary, there will also be enough unique and fascinating art installations and photo ops to fill your Instagram with so much fabulousity you’ll be invited to the next Fyre Festival.
OKC Energy vs Phoenix Rising
June 22 | 8 p.m.
Our local football club takes on Phoenix Rising this week at Taft Stadium. It is Military Appreciation night on Saturday. The first 2,000 fans will receive a mini American flag, and active duty and retired military members can get half off their ticket price with their military ID. Veterans and active duty personnel will be celebrated before and during the match — and Colonel Bell, the 72nd Air Base Wing Commander will be on hand for a few words.
