Grand Prairie | January 12 – 14
Swimming in January? You bet. Grab your swimsuit and head to Grand Prairie for their newest attraction, Epic Waters, the largest indoor waterpark in the nation. Be the first to try three one-of-a-kind water rides, a lazy river and more! If you’re a Grand Prairie resident, you’re in luck: You’ll receive a discount on the regular admission cost of $24 to $29.
Fort Worth | January 12 – February 3
As a local, I have to say, this thing is legendary. Each year, cowboys from across Texas head into town for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo (FWSSR). Join them as they take part in the Texas tradition of the FWSSR All Western Parade on Saturday at 11 a.m. Then stick around for bull riding and cowboy fun at the Will Rogers Memorial Center…and maybe even get your own pair of cowboy boots while you’re at it!
Denton | January 13
If wedding bells are in your future, head to Denton’s premier bridal event featuring the best of Denton County’s photographers, event rentals and more. Plus, it’s at Texas Women’s University—possibly one of the prettiest campuses around. Entry is $10 (and includes admission to a raffle).
Irving | January 13 – 14
Have you been wanting to give your home a little TLC? Visit the Irving Convention Center for Texas Home and Garden’s 7th annual home show for inspiration (and deals!) on kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor living and energy efficient spaces. This is your one-stop-shop for professional advice and home products, whether it’s for a full-blown remodel or a small change of style.
