Oklahoma Regatta Festival
Meet your favorite superheroes September 28-29 at Superhero Weekend in downtown Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District.
On Friday, September 28, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., meet comic book favorites, like Batman, Wonder Woman and Black Widow joined by the real Superheroes of Oklahoma City, our firefighters, police officers and EMSA, during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival’s OGE NightSprints.
The Superhero teams return to RIVERSPORT Adventure Park on Saturday, September 29 from 11:00 a.m.to 1:00 p.m. for a hands-on experience.
“Anyone who gets a $10 Youth Zone Pass on Saturday will get a face mask and cape – plus access to the Youth Zone,” explained Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation Executive Director Mike Knopp. “Kids will get to meet Captain America, Thor and Wonder Woman and check out the OKCFD and EMSA vehicles.”
Sponsor a duck for $50 in the first OKCRespond RIVERSPORT Great Duck Race to support the free programs RIVERSPORT offers to first responders, and you could win a fun prize if your duck wins the race down the rapids. Thousands of rubber duckies will race down RIVERSPORT Rapids on Saturday, September 29 at 5:00 p.m.
“OKCRespond was started by Ronnie Irani as a way to support Oklahoma City’s first responders. As part of the program, RIVERSPORT offers first responders including firefighters, police officers and EMSA a fitness and wellness program free of charge,” explained Knopp. “Right now, we have more than 500 members.”
The Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation, OKCRespond and the Committee of 100 will honor all Oklahoma City first responders and their families at a free lunch cookout on Sunday, September 30. Everyone who attends will also receive a free RIVERSPORT Day Pass, good through 2019. The event is free to first responders, but pre-registration is required and can be completed at https://www.riversportokc.org/okcrespond/.
