Treat your son or daughter like royalty at this year’s Sweetheart Dance at The Marq. Several princes and princesses will come dressed to impress on Saturday. The night will include a live DJ, limo rides, light refreshment and lots of photo opportunities. Register online for either of the night’s sessions to ensure your spot for the grand ball.
The Cavanaugh Flight Museum will be hosting Drone Wars V this weekend. Both newbies and flying experts can come out to test their skills at this exciting event. After practicing and qualifying rounds on Friday night and Saturday morning, the race will begin! Those quick drones will make their way around the 11,000 square-foot hanger in hopes to walk away with the cash prize. Come out to watch the action or show off your stuff.
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Motivate your family to get moving on Saturday by walking in the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K/5K. The Fair Park fun run will be a fun-packed day full of exercise, giving and lots of sweets. The day’s proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation, who grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Stop by the sweet stations after you are done with the race to enjoy delicious dark chocolate treats. Their picture-perfect cups are reason enough to come out and be part of the fun.
Get the whole family creating together at the Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery’s Help-Create Hearts + Flowers event. This Saturday activity will let each participate select a color and apply that to the hot molten glass gather. Then sit back and watch a professional make magic in the 2,000-degree furnace. Reservations are not accepted for this first-come, first-serve event, so get there early if you want to create a keepsake.
Introduce your children to a classic this Saturday by stopping by the Palace Arts Center for To Catch a Thief. The movie, famously directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and Jessie Royce Landis, follows a reformed jewel thief suspected of turning back to his old tricks. The captivating performance will keep you on the edge of your seat. Plus, you can score free popcorn from the concession stand if you show a same-day receipt from a Grapevine restaurant. What a steal!
