Going to Grapevine is always a blast and this summer is no exception. Grapevine’s SummerBlast begins Memorial Day weekend and continues throughout the summer.

Come out to Flag Pole Hill Park for a free family fun concert series that many DFW locals look forward to every year. Listen to the sounds of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, then watch the fireworks show! Feeling organized? Pack a picnic from home, and be sure to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
Even if you’re not a Rangers fan, there’s tons of great reasons to catch a game at Arlington’s ballpark! The Rangers are playing every night Memorial Day Weekend, but if your kiddos love fireworks, I’d suggested getting tickets to Friday’s game. Better yet, it’s Star Wars weekend—so be sure to pack your old Halloween costumes if you want to dress up!
Going to Six Flags in Arlington is a bucket list must. Come out and experience a new twist of fun at Six Flags this Memorial Day weekend with their freestyle rollercoaster, The Joker. For the younger ones, kids will love Boomtown Depot and fun rides like The Cloud Bouncer and the Mini Mine Train.
