10/14/2013

Did you feel that? Yes, even though it’s raining outside this Monday morning, the temperature has finally dropped into boot-friendly temperatures! With the heat retreating at last, we can don our favorite scarves, grab a pumpkin spice latte, and check out the best events of fall in Dallas! (Don’t worry. We’ve got plenty of indoor fun for you and the whole family for all those wet Mondays to come. . .)

 

Chinese Lantern Festival at Fair Park

Through January 5, 2014

Chinese-Lantern-Festival-at-Fair-Park4

 

Chinese-Lantern-Festival-at-Fair-Park2
The festival debuted last year during the State Fair of Texas, and it was so popular that its run was extended. Back for its second year, this exquisite illuminated exhibit still enchants us at night.

Animal Inside Out at Perot Museum

Through February 17, 2014

Created by Body Worlds mastermind Dr. Gunther von Hagens, this exhibit offers museum-goers an unprecedented — and, at times, creepy — look into animals’ anatomy. Explore 100 preserved specimens and learn about the incredible science of some of the world’s most interesting mammals.

shutterstock_124052635

Now in its second year, this music fest is bringing acts such as Jason Eady, Black Lillies, The Relatives, Daphne Willis, Band of Heathens, Seryn, Ian Moore, Ruthie Foster and Bob Schneider to its stage.

In addition to a full day of concerts, enthusiasts can indulge in complimentary bites from local food trucks and children’s activities. Pets are welcome too.

 

Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot

November 28

This Dallas tradition, now in its 46th year, is our favorite way to start the holiday — mainly because it eases the guilt for the meal we’re about to consume, and it supports a good cause. Join fellow Dallasites — some of whom are decked out in turkey and pilgrim costumes — at City Hall Plaza for the 5K or 8-mile race.
