This weekend features everything we love about summer: sweet treats, time spent outdoors, swimming fun and quality time spent with the family. With so much going on, it’s easy to find a kid-friendly activity perfect for your family. Where are you headed this weekend? Tag us, @SouthlakeStyleMag, in your Instagram stories to show us how you are spending your summer weekends!
How far will you go to see “Moana?” Let your kids splash in the water while enjoying the new Disney Pixar classic at Carrollton’s Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex’s Swim-In Cinema on Friday, July 13. Open swim will be available from 7 p.m. until dark, and after the sun sets, the movie will play on a projector so everyone in the pool can see. Non-residents can float while they watch for $7, and residents can enjoy the city’s Parks and Recreation Department’s event for $5.
Grab your tennis shoes and get to stepping at Walk and Breakfast with Mayor Hill on Saturday, July 14, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Your kids will love venturing around North Park with the Southlake mayor, and the whole crew will get in a little bit of exercise. And Bill Tait State Farm Insurance will be providing food, so everyone will leave satisfied.
To enjoy old-time music and Victorian lawn games, head over to Nash Farm in Grapevine for their Ice Cream Social on Saturday at 7 p.m. Guests can bring out their lawn chairs, quilts and picnics and enjoy music from The Lone Star String Band. Plus, guests will receive a tasty treat to round out the evening.
For a quick road trip that will take you back to a simpler time, make your way to the 34th annual Parker County Peach Festival in Historic Downtown Weatherford on Saturday. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests can enjoy more than 200 arts, crafts, food and activity booths, live music, children’s activities and much more. Admission is $5 for adults, but children 12 and under can enjoy the festival for free. Sounds like a peachy deal to us.
If you need more National Ice Cream Day celebrations, head over to the Kimbell Art Museum on Sunday, July 15 from 12 to 3 p.m. to enjoy a sweet scoop of Blue Bunny. Ben E. Keith Co. will be providing cups of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream for those visiting the museum. Get there early though; the ice cream will only be available while it lasts. Locals can also take advantage of the additional free activities like a special performance of “The Ice Cream Song” by the Fort Worth Opera, children’s films screened in the auditorium and much more.
