Kids and family events in Dallas-Fort Worth, August 25-31
Dog art, high school football, and Jewish culture are your best bets this week.
Now that school is back in session, getting out of the house for extracurricular activities can be extra tough. There's got to be a good reason to commit, and all of these week's events should give you a good excuse to postpone that homework for a little while.
Friday night, you can enjoy the First and Last Annual Art in the Bark Park at Deep Ellum Bark Park in Dallas. Dogs young, old, and not with us anymore will be celebrated through murals, and entertainment will be provided via a DJ and performing dog troupe.
Friday night is also the start of high school football season. The Cotton Bowl is helping to kick things off with one game, The Colony vs. Sherman, on Friday, and two more games, Grapevine vs. Midlothian and Duncanville vs. Colleyville Heritage, on Saturday. Other than the first day of school, there's no better way to celebrate the start of school in Texas than by taking in some football.
Finally, Jews and non-Jews alike can have fun at The 13th Annual Jewish Arts Fest at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas on Sunday. It'll be just like any other festival you'll go to, complete with food, music, and roving performers, all with a Jewish flair.
