Getting your kids excited about going back to school after a week off can be a little challenging. If your family need one last celebration before Monday, check out one of these fun family-friendly weekend activities.
Spend some quality time with your favorite cowboy and spaceman duo by checking out The Palace Arts Center’s special showing of Toy Story. Come out Friday at 7:30 p.m. to see these toys make their way back to their favorite boy. And with tickets running at $6, you can treat your favorite boys and girls to a fun night out. Make sure to bring your receipt if you dine out a Grapevine restaurant beforehand – you’ll get a free popcorn to enjoy during the show.
Dust off your favorite costume and head out to the Southlake Superhero 5K & Fun Run this Saturday. The race acts as the culmination of the LiveFit Wellness Challenge and gives locals the opportunity to celebrate all their hard work. So come out to Bicentennial park to get to stepping, no matter whether you are running seriously or just want to stroll through the route. Be sure to stick around for the race's awards ceremony, which will be held near the finish line at The Marq’s Aria Amphitheater.
Find your something over the rainbow by stopping by Taste Buds Kitchen’s St. Patty’s Rainbow Cupcakes Workshop. Come out with your littles to create a colorful treat that will put a smile on their face. And with their delicious flavors and cute sprinkles will make you want to steal a bite – or two – for yourself. Admission runs at $28 per child and caregiver team.
Get a taste of the best of spring by stopping by Dallas Blooms at The Dallas Arboretum. This year’s theme is “A World Of Flowers,” which means each week will feature buds from different regions. This is one of the largest floral festivals in the southwest, so don’t miss out on the chance to see some of the season’s most colorful natural features. Daytime admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children 3-12. Kids under two can see the arrangements for free.
Check out a St. Patrick’s Day festival the whole family can enjoy by heading out to Fort Worth’s Stockyards National Historic District for Cowtown Goes Green. This free family-friendly day will include armadillo races, face painting, cow camp, live music and an exciting themed cattle drive. Be sure to stick around for the parade that will follow. There will be something for everyone to enjoy at this shindig.
