Love experiencing different cultures? Head to Haggard Park this weekend to travel the world with food, dance performances and cultural displays from over 100 countries. If you’re a fan of foreign films, be sure to snag a $15 ticket to Simple Notes, featuring live classical Indian music and a Q&A after the show.
Pilot Point | October 13
Back in the day, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow wreaked havoc on Texas with their reckless bank robberies. Rumor has it that they used to hang out in Pilot Point! Step into the past at this annual festival, where you’ll find antique cars (like the ones Bonnie & Clyde used to steal), live performances and a bank robbery reenactment at noon and 3 p.m. Make it a full weekend of Bonnie & Clyde history by following their footsteps through DFW!
Fort Worth | October 13 – 14
Keep your eyes to the sky this weekend for the ultimate air show experience! At Fort Worth Alliance Airport, you can watch pilots perform acrobatics in the sky, then get an up-close look at warbirds and antique planes, play in the kids zone and meet the performers back on the ground. Come see why USA Today named this one of the best air shows in the nation!
COST—Admission is FREE, general parking is $30 per car. NOTE: Saturday’s air show has been cancelled due to threat of sever weather.
5. GET SPOOKED
DFW | October 12 – 14
Let’s be real—a weekend in October isn’t complete without a scare or two! It’s the perfect time to learn about real-life haunts on a ghost tour, scream your way through a haunted house or get spooked during my favorite Halloween tradition: Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Texas. Don’t blame me if you have nightmares next week!
