Sandie’s Arts Blog: Father’s Day Events
It’s Father’s Day weekend, so let’s find some fun things to do to celebrate dear old dad!
Why not take dad out for a fun afternoon at the legendary House of Blues for their special Father’s Day Gospel Brunch featuring Lady Diamond and The Zion Travelers. In honor of good old dad, there will be two seatings at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. — a good time will be had by all, especially if pop likes to sing along!
Saturday is CBS 11’s 9th annual Stephanie’s Day event at NorthPark Center in Dallas. Dedicated to helping families with special needs, many resources can be found by various vendors to aid those dealing with autism and other challenges. It’s a free event and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Come out for some great information, fun activities for the kids, and you’ll even be able to meet members of our CBS 11 family!
The hugely successful and much anticipated “Jersey Boys” has finally opened at our AT&T Performing Arts Center and is a must-see for everyone — especially dad! It’s based on the true life story of the iconic ’60s boy band the Four Seasons and Frankie Valli, and their rise to fame against all odds. I guarantee you will be humming “Sherrie,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” or “Walk Like a Man” by the end of the show! It continues through July 15.
The 21st annual Concerts in the Garden is underway this weekend at Fort Worth’s Botanical Gardens. So, break out the picnic basket and relax under the stars while listening to great music provided by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and friends! Seventeen nights of outdoor concerts will continue every weekend through July 4. Lawn seating is $16 in advance or $22 at the gate. Ages 10 and under are free on the lawn with an adult. Table seating is $23 to $43 in advance and $28 to $48 at the gate.
And lastly, come out and celebrate our great Arts District with the annual Summer Block Party, Friday night from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. The DMA, Nasher Sculpture Center and Crow Collection of Asian Art all stay open, and you can enjoy outdoor performances, films and a progressive tour of all three museums. The Dallas Opera will also be on-board with a discussion of the upcoming season.
Have a great weekend and Happy Father’s Day to all our great North Texas dads out there! See you next week… center stage!
