If you're reading this on April Fool's Day, don't worry. I am SO not a prankster. And the subject is spring festivals in Dallas-Fort Worth, which I take very seriously. Spring is here, the sun is out, and the flowers are blooming. That also means there will be at least a handful of festivals every weekend for the next nine weeks or so. You'll have to plan carefully or choose wisely to get to the best of the fests.
You might start this month with a bucket list of events to attend, but if you don't pace yourself, you'll have festival fatigue before May. Don't do that. Use these lists and tips to find your way to the best fests, food, and flowers. I'll take you through the month of April and then peek ahead into May.
I love local! Small and family-run businesses, restaurants with a local focus, city or community events and organizations - they will always find a place here on my blog. I'll guide you to some of the best in Big D and around DFW!
Dallas has plenty of great media outlets and a lot of great blogs too. The hottest new things get plenty of buzz, so my focus is on "new-to-you" places, events and activities .
You don't have to be a boomer to enjoy old fashioned places and things. My blog brings a little bit of reminiscing mixed with historic tidbits and tales of longstanding (& still standing!) Dallas and DFW icons.
I'm a bit of a contrarian but I still like to celebrate some seaonal stuff. And I love those pretend holidays too. So if you need a heads up for World Nutella Day or a place to go on World Margarita Day, I've got you covered.
I'm migrating the blog over here from Tumblr. Check out what's here and then
