1. UNT vs. UTEP
Denton | November 2
Come on out to Apogee Stadium to see the UNT Mean Green take on their Conference USA rivals, the UTEP Miners. The Mean Green lead the all time series against the Miners 15-8, and they will look to add to that lead in a down year for the UTEP program. We recommend coming out to this game to see high level, Division I football for a low price in an intimate atmosphere. The whole family will enjoy this experience and the ability to be closer to the players than you would be at a game for schools like TCU and SMU. You will also see highlight plays similar to those from last year’s game. The Mean Green took that one 27-24. This year’s game is sure to be a blast!
COST – Tickets start at $21.
Dallas | November 1
Check out the new look Dallas Mavericks, as they square off against Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. There’s no better way to spend a Friday night in Dallas than at the American Airlines Center for a Mavs game. Win or lose, they always put on an exhilarating show! This is also the one year (and one day) anniversary of an incredible Halloween match up between the teams that went down to the wire! You are sure to have a fantastic time at this one, and it’s a match up you never want to miss!
COST – Tickets start at $78.

Diwali is the biggest holiday in India, a celebration of all the good things in life. It makes sense then, that there will be a Texas-sized celebration near Southlake Town Square at Rustin Pavilion, one of the city’s most beautiful areas. Diwali Fest brings traditional Indian dance, food, and entertainment to Dallas-Fort Worth, in an unforgettable celebration with vibrant clothing and tasty food. This local festival is a great way to have fun and learn about the rich depths of Indian culture!

You’ll also enjoy live music, and deluxe food and juices from local restaurants like Kincaid’s Hamburgers and Boulevard of Greens.
