Dallas Right Now

We love this quote from The Dallas Morning News: “We’re in Texas. Blowing stuff up (loudly) in the name of freedom is part of who we are.”

There are many great things to do in North Texas including wonderful celebrations of the fourth of July and cheering on our very own Texas Rangers.

Here are just a few of our favs:

MetroPCS Fair Park Fourth – Celebrate Independence Day with festivities for all ages and be dazzled by beautiful fireworks from inside Dallas’ historic Cotton Bowl Stadium from 4:30 – 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 4, at Fair Park. Free and open to the public, the family event will feature a Dallas Wind Symphony patriotic performance, reduced admission to Fair Park’s museums from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., “dancing water” shows at the Esplanade Fountain, carnival games, plus a spectacular fireworks show.

Check out more North Texas fourth of July celebrations here.

Summer Fun Thursdays – Free children’s activities beginning at 1 p.m. at The Shops at Willow Bend in Grand Court, located on the lower level between Neiman Marcus and the Food Court.

Target First Saturdays at Nasher Sculpture Center – Families and children are invited to explore the current exhibition through an interactive and fun-filled day featuring tours, art activities, live demos and more.

Taste Dance Addison – A rich, interactive, culturally diverse experience so beautiful you can taste it. Dance experiences from flamenco, to belly dancing, to musical theater treat everyone involved to nothing less than decadence. The event, held January 29 from 2-4 p.m., is free.

Concerts at the Dallas Arboretum – Tuesday and Thursday nights with the beautiful garden scenery overlooking White Rock Lake, the all new Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill and the award-winning Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn.

Dollar Day at the Dallas Zoo – Get your family out of the house and have some fun! The Dallas Zoo offers $1 admission all day July 19th!

Happy July! We are proud to be Americans!
