Kids and family events in Dallas-Fort Worth, February 10-17
Celebrations of Valentine's Day and Black History Month, plus a dose of Narnia, headline this week's events.
If you're reading this on Wednesday, you may not be all that interested in thinking about any event taking place outside your own home. But fret not! Temperatures will be back in the 50s and 60s by the weekend, leaving you no excuse to not get out and have some fun.
Artisan Center Theater in Hurst is currently presenting Prince Caspian, an adaptation of the second book in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia series (playing through March 11). If you were disappointed in the movie version, Artisan Center Theater promises to stay closer to the original storyline. They probably can't make Aslan look like this, but it'll be interesting to see what they do come up with.
Valentine's Day is coming up on Monday, and for anybody who's searching for a unique gift, look no further. Vetro Glass Blowing Studio in Grapevine is holding what they call a Traditional Valentine Experience all day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Parents and accompanied children will be taught how to make glass flowers and hearts to give to that special someone. Results may vary, but it's the thought that counts.
Finally, the South Dallas Cultural Center will celebrate Black History Month with their annual Black History Month Concert on Saturday. The SDCC's choir has been putting on the concert for the past 25 years, which, according to the SDCC, is "the perfect example of edutainment for the entire family."
