If you’ve moved into your new community at the Galleries at Park Lane recently, you may be looking ahead to summer wondering what there is to do. Once the summer sun starts to heat up in the Dallas area, the events, activities, and festivals of the region move into full swing.
Attend the Big D BBQ Battle
In Addison Circle Park, in nearby Addison, on June 9, the best BBQ masters in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth region will vie for the title of best in the area at this annual competition. While they cook up their savory feasts, you have the opportunity to sample the BBQ along with beer and other festivities. Your $30 ticket includes all-you-care-to-eat of the sample foods from 40 different cook teams, as well as the beer cup to sample local breweries. There will also be a kid’s fun area and a car show. While this isn’t technically in Dallas city center, if you love BBQ, you’ll want to make the trip to Addison.
Sample Food at Taste of Dallas
If you want to stick closer to home, visit the Gas Monkey Bar & Grill in Dallas on June 22 through June 24 for Taste of Dallas. General Admission tickets are for sale along with the Special Ticket Bundle. This event features food from over 50 restaurants and food trucks that you can sample, as well as live music and plenty of activities. The event brings out four different stages to host 40 music acts throughout the weekend, and all concerts are included in the price of admission. Bring money for food, or come on Friday night for the Foodie Experience which includes all-inclusive food and drink sampling.
Attend Hollywood at the Symphony
What would your favorite movie be like without the soundtrack? The answer is – quite boring. June 15 through June 17, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be performing Hollywood at the Symphony, an evening of the greatest hits from some of Hollywood’s best soundtracks. Make plans now to attend and celebrate your love of the movies by enjoying the sounds that go with them.
