Here are some thrilling events going on around Southwest Florida August 17-19!

Saturday and Sunday at the Immokalee raceway, there’s a free drifting event . Drifting is when the back tires of the car lose control and the driver continues to turn a corner.

They will have free food, music and ride-alongs for people to get a taste of what drifting is. Immokalee raceway has this car event to promote safety. They want drivers off the streets and onto a track that is controlled and safe for them and spectators. It hopes this event will bring to life the sport of drifting.

Sasha Singh is a local artist who teaches painting classes on the weekend.

You can join Singh at Rosen Park at noon on Saturday to learn how to paint your pet. Bring a printed out picture of your pet, and she will take you step-by-step through the painting process. The paint, canvas, and brushes are included with your ticket. Click here for more information .
