Kids and family events in Dallas-Fort Worth, February 3-9
If you want non-Super Bowl options this week, you've come to the right place.
It's all Super Bowl, all the time this week. If you're interested in taking part in any aspect of the hoopla surrounding the event, we've got you covered. But, shockingly, the Super Bowl is not the only thing going on this weekend. For non-football fans or for those who just need a break, here are some other good choices for your leisure time.
Dallas Children's Theater kicks off its Teen Scene Festival on Friday with hard 2 spel dad, a play highlighting the struggles of teenagers with dyslexia. The festival's three other productions -- dont u luv me?, The Secret Life of Girls, and EAT (It's Not About Food) -- all deal with other issues faced by young people. The festival runs through February 20 at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts in Dallas.
In celebration of the Chinese New Year, The Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art is hosting a Year of the Rabbit-themed AdventureAsia: Family Days at the Crow on Saturday. There will be a rabbit petting zoo, storytelling, arts & crafts, and other fun activities.
Finally, if you must do something Super Bowl-related, why not make it charitable? The Super Sunday Morning Hope Walk will take place in Sundance Square in Fort Worth on (duh) Sunday. Cowboys great Tony Dorsett will be one of the hosts for the 5K Walk and Fun Run, which will benefit Cook Children’s Hospital, Fort Worth Independent School District, and the Hope Walk Foundation.
