The 3rd annual Enid Comic Con runs August 1-2 at the Stride Bank Center. This is a family-friendly comic con with children’s and adult costume contests featuring cash prizes. Local and out-of-state vendors will be there buying, selling and trading. Sam Jones, who played Flash Gordon in the 1980 movie “Flash,” will be there both days, signing autographs and taking photos with attendees.

Merchants all across Enid will welcome you with great deals during Crazy Days July 30-August 1. Many retail locations will have specials throughout their stores and perhaps even more deals spilling out onto their sidewalks. Check with specific stores to see who is participating and their business hours.
Gaslight Theatre presents the opening weekend of the horror comedy rock musical “Little Shop of Horrors” July 31-August 2. Seymore works at a flower shop, attending a plant who he has named Audrey II. However, this is no ordinary plant. It came from outer space and requires a diet of fresh blood. Seymore starts by giving his own blood but when people start dying, the plant wants more than a few drops. The show has been a favorite for over 30 years, and Gaslight brings it to the stage Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for military and $9 for students. Due to social distancing recommendations, all seating is general admission and seating will be limited.
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center presents “History Alive!” on August 1 from 11 am-3 pm. Step back in time and experience life on the Cherokee Strip as re-enactors tend to their shops and work their trades of the time. Admission is the regular museum price of $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for students. All visitors must wear masks at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center. Masks are provided at the front desk.
For motorsports enthusiasts, Auto Racing at Enid Speedway, the fastest 3/8 mile track in the Midwest, takes place August 1.
