Festivals across Green Country are taking precautions in the heat to keep people safe.

Friday's 6:30pm concert at OK Mozart Festival in Bartlesville moved indoors.

Normally the Woolaroc concert is held outdoors, and people bring their picnic blankets.

Organizers wanted to avoid people being exposed to the extreme heat, so they moved it to the Community Center.

Also, the Juneteenth festival in downtown Tulsa started an hour later than scheduled because of the heat.

Organizers say they'll be providing a water station, EMSA paramedic services and be offering heat safety tips.

At the G Fest in Muskogee, people can cool off at its misting stations, and the bands will be playing in covered stages.

While these festivals are equipped for the heat, experts still advise you take your own precautions and stay hydrated.
