This weekend is all about being outside. From Pottsboro to Prosper and Dallas, Texoma has plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors this weekend. Here are five free Saturday activities that you will get you and your family outdoors.
1. Dancing in the street
The city of Prosper is hoping that music, food and shopping will bring the community to Frontier Park Saturday. Prosper’s “Music at the Park” will be held from 4-8 p.m. Saturday. There will be a performance by Vegas Stars and booths from other local businesses.
2. One plus two equals art
If you are looking for the formula for art, Pottsboro has it. If you would like to learn the art of how to barbecue, how to play horseshoes, how to lasso, how to eat with chopsticks, how to ice a cupcake or how to care for a new dog, then Pottsboro has been working to create a festival for you. The “How-to” Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the James G. Thompson Park.
3.Calling all kids: Come rock out
The monthly Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge will have its free program for children Saturday. Rocks, rock formations and rock composition be the focus of the program. “The Refuge Rocks” will be held at 10 a.m. for children ages 4 through 12 years. Register children separately online or call 903-786-2826.
4. Rev your engines!
The Lone Star Masonic Lodge 403 will have some cool cars on display Saturday. The group will host its car show at the Old B. McDaniel property Saturday. There will be a NASCAR ride along with a drawing. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the awards ceremony is at 2 p.m. Prizes will be given for first, second and third places. For more information, call 903-771-9382.
5. Pets, pets and more pets
Just in case you missed the Bark and Paw Festival in downtown Denison last week, you can attend the Dallas Pet Expo this weekend. After an hour trip down U.S. Highway 75, festival goers can visit with vendors or see some service animals and programs. There will also be food vendors and a drawing. The event will be held 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Market Hall, 2200 Stemmons Fwy., Dallas.
