Kids and family events in Dallas-Fort Worth, February 2-8
Fishing, canoeing, and the circus are your best bets this week.
We are in the middle of winter, right? With the abundance of 60+ degree days lately, it feels more like spring than the supposed dead of winter around here. With that in mind, let's try to focus on outdoor activities. Organized ones don't come around too often this time of year, so you'd be wise to take advantage when they're offered.
First up is Trick-a-Trout Kid Fish at Frisco Commons Park, taking place Saturday morning. Rainbow trout will be released into the pond, but you'll have to provide your own equipment. Adults can even get in on the action once the event ends at 11 a.m.
When you think of canoeing in the area, you usually have to go to a lake or river. Not so with the Wetland Canoe Trails event at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney. You'll get to explore the wetlands while also learning about this unique ecology. You must be 7 years old to participate.
Finally, animals, clowns, acrobats, and more will be on display when the Piccadilly Circus makes a stop at Diamond T Arena in Denton for six performances on Saturday and Sunday. Ringling Bros. may officially be the "Greatest Show on Earth," but Piccadilly will have more than a few entertaining tricks up its sleeve, too.
