Kids and family events in Dallas-Fort Worth, May 31-June 6
Celebrate the end of school and the beginning of summer.
School is ending for the vast majority of children in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, so activities to keep their attention is now more necessary than ever. Fortunately, there is no shortage of worthy events from which to choose, so get out and about and have some fun!
Quakertown Park in Denton will host the annual Dog Days of Summer on Friday and Saturday. The festival, open to humans and dogs alike, will have food, live music, and a wide variety of dog-themed activities, including frisbee catching, dancing, and which dog has the longest tongue. Woof!
Highland Village celebrates the beginning of summer with their annual Red, White, and Blue Festival on Saturday. In the morning, there will be family fishing and a 1K/5K run at Unity Park, and evening activities at Copperas Branch Park will include a couple of country concerts and fireworks.
Finally, we may be almost 5,000 miles away from England, but that doesn't mean we can't participate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebration, which the British Emporium in Grapevine will do on Saturday. All things British will be honored, from a queen look-alike contest to samples of imported British food. It's amazing what 236 years of freedom from tyranny can do to change perspectives.
