May 09, 2018 02:12PM ● By Ashley Madonna

Who said Mother's Day had to be kept to May 13? Turn the holiday into a three-day weekend celebration by spending quality time with your loved ones. Here are five family-friendly activities that will help you get started. 

Curious George: The Golden Meatball

This weekend, Carroll Senior High School Theatre will perform Curious George: The Golden Meatball. The three-performance run will include two shows on Friday evening and two on Saturday afternoon. Tickets are $10 and available on or can be the day of. But make sure to bring cash – they will not accept cards at the door. 

Disco Kids at It’ll Do

Your kids deserve to blow off some steam. So bring them out to It’ll Do to enjoy a DJ-lead dance party. Kids 13 and younger can come out to enjoy some great clean music, a light-up dance floor, mobile photo booth, face painting and snacks. Tickets are $5 per child – and parents accompanying children get in free.

Downtown Dallas Movie Series

If your kids are obsessed with “How Far I’ll Go,” treat them to a night out in the big D by stopping by the Downtown Dallas Movie Series. This Friday at 7:45 p.m., they will host a showing of Moana. Come watch the adventurous teenager as she sails out to save her community and meets some friends along the way. It’s the perfect opportunity to freshen up the typical movie night routine. 

1860s Baseball Game at Nash Farm

See America’s pastime how it was played in the 19th century at Nash Farm’s 1860s Baseball Game. The Grapevine farm will host an exhibition game to demonstrate to locals how the game was played back in the olden days. Bring out your lawn chair and blankets and get ready to cheer on the teams. Snacks and refreshments will be included in ticket purchases. 

Butterfly Festival

Imagine walking through a beautiful conservatory filled with vibrant plants and more than 1,000 butterflies. Now make that image come to life by heading over to The Shops at Willow Bend for The Greater Plano Kiwanis Club’s Annual Butterfly Festival. The display is rounding out its stay this Sunday, so be sure to stop by to see it before then. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for children and free for children under two.
