Anytime Things to Do in March

March is Noodle Month.
Try Khao Noodle Shop, named the 2nd Best New Restaurant in America.
Or visit one of these eateries that offer hand-pulled noodles.
Or head to Plano for some famous New York City noodles.

March is also Women’s History Month.
Watch some inspiring movies at the Women's History Month Film Series at the Dallas Holocaust and Hunan Rights Museum.
Visit the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.

I’m proclaiming that Flower Season is officially here.

Check out one of these ongoing events:

Butterflies in the Garden at the  Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Dallas Blooms: Sounds of Spring at the Dallas Arboretum

Or Pick your own tulips at one of these amazing tulip farms:
Texas-Tulips in Pilot Point
Poston Gardens in Waxahachie

Bluebonnets usually don’t bloom until late March or early April. But keep your eyes peeled - last year they came early. Once they start blooming you’ll only have a few weeks to enoy them.

Spring Festival Season is something to behold in Dallas.
The North Texas Irish Festival is often the first big festival of the year in Dallas. From now until June, there will likely be at least one major festival every weekend.
