Grand Lake in NE Oklahoma is the place to be if you like fun and inexpensive activities. Today, Saturday August 14, 2010 is just one example of the many fun things to do in the Grand Lake area. As I drove to the office this morning and came over Sailboat Bridge coming into Grove, OK I could see boats by the zillion at 8 AM. What were they doing out so early? Waiting for the Grand Lake Bobber Drop, which is a helicopter dropping fishing bobbers in the lake with marked numbers relating to prizes given away to the person who finds the bobber. Grand Prize is a trip to Cozumel, Mexico with other prizes of all sorts including a baby calf. This is the second annual time for this event that was revived last year after a several year’s absense.

Later today in Jay, OK is the Cruise Nite with activities starting shortly afternoon and going until about 11 tonite. Cruise Nite will draw over 300 classic, custom, and hot rod cars and trucks. It will include a parade, several vendor booths, and a great time for all.

Tonite in Grove, the Humane Society is hosting a barbaque hoe down with dinner and band at the Civic Center in downtown.

Later this month is the Will Rogers Memorial Rodeo in Vinita and World’s Largest Calf Fry Festival. September brings the Pelican Festival to Grove.

These are just a few of the activities that bring enjoyment to families and friends in the Grand Lake area. Go to the web site for the Grand Lake Association for a calendar of events. You will find events all year to enjoy in the Grand Lake area. Of course we always enjoy boating, sailing, sea-dooing, fishing and other water sports as well as golf.

You may find you like the area so well that you would like to have a second home on the lake or perhaps a retirement home on Grand Lake or Grove, OK where family and friends can gather for special holidays and get to gathers.
