In the hope that the heat does not keep people indoors, there will be plenty of outdoor activities taking place around Texoma this weekend. There will be a concert, a movie in the park, a reading event, a balloon fight and a rodeo to keep everyone up and moving. Here are five events to keep people enjoying summertime.
