After a week of rain, the weekend is set to bring out the sun. So break out of the house and spend some time venturing through town with your family. If you’re looking for a family-friendly weekend activity, we’ve got you covered.

Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope

May the Fourth be with you and your kids this Friday. Whether they are super into the movie dynasty or are newbies to the galaxy far, far away, this movie night at The Palace Arts Center is a great way to spend some quality time while enjoying a classic. Be sure to dress as your favorite character in the series and get free popcorn. A special award will be given out to the audience’s favorite costumes.  

First Fridays at the Farm

Get a feel for the olden days by stopping by First Friday Decoration Day at Nash Farm.  Each month’s event features a different theme. And May is all about creating family-friendly crafts. All guests aged three and up will be able to craft paper flowers. The participation fee is just $3 per person, so it’s an easy option for a fun Friday afternoon. 

Irving Concert Series 4 Kids

Jam out with your kids at this month’s Irving Concert Series 4 Kids’ Free Friday Concert. The Central Library Auditorium will open its doors at 9 a.m. and runs until 11 a.m. Mr. Willy, a guitarist known for his silly songs, funny stories and amusing puppets, will be out playing for local kids. Bahama Bucks will also be parked outside the building entrance for those looking for a sweet treat. It’s sure to be a comical morning.  


After months of planning and building excitement, FÜDTRUKY is finally here. Come out to The Marq’s Aria Amphitheater on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 for a day full of great food, buzzing brews and rocking tunes. With grub provided by a diverse set of food trucks, craft beer from local breweries and live entertainment all day long, it’s sure to be Southlake’s hot spot for Cinco de Mayo celebrating. 

Festival Cinco de Mayo

Keep the party going all weekend long by attending Festival Cinco de Mayo in Grapevine on Sunday evening. The day will be full of music, from Mariachi Allende – a multi-generational mariachi group, and dancing, with performances by Ballet Folkorica – Fort Worth’s oldest, largest and most recognized Mexican folk dance organization. Come out to learn more about preserving Mexican traditions and get a taste of the culture’s flare.
