The Now KC has your weekend planned

Kansas City, mo. - We made it to the weekend! There's always something to do around Kansas City. So we found a few things that you might like to get into!

The Drenched 5K

The Drenched 5K kicks off Saturday morning at Tiffany Springs Park. If the idea of running in the middle of July sounds terrible, don't worry, this event will actually cool you off. That's because along the course there are water zones with sprinklers, slip-n-slides and water balloons. So, you'll get drenched while you run. That starts at 10 a.m. Saturday. Find more info here.

KC Fringe Festival

It's the last weekend for the KC Fringe Festival. It celebrates all the creative talent we have here in the city. There are events Friday, Saturday and Sunday.You can find a schedule of events here .

If fair food and carnival rides are more your thing, there are a bunch of county fairs going on around the area right now. The Platte County fair is happening up in Platte City this weekend. There are a ton of events with this. You can find more information here.

Johnson Country Fair

The Johnson County fair starts Monday. Right now, crews are getting it all set up.A big part of the fair is the 4H club. Kids work really hard to get their projects entered into the fair competition. But if you think 4H is just for the country kids, you're wrong.

"4H is not really a one size fits all thing" says member Olivia Rogers. "There's projects for whatever you want grow in, there's leadership projects, there's the farm animals, technology it's really what you're interested in, you're able to do and to grow in."

The fair starts Monday, July 28. It runs through next weekend, August 2. That's happening in Gardner -- near Gardner Road and Washington Street.
