Fun in the Fort: April 2018
In Texas, springtime is the best, and April is full of fun! Here are all my recommended family friendly events coming up this month.
April 6 Pinstripes is having their Grand Opening Celebration. This is your chance to go see the new bowling/bocce ball and bistro destination located in Clearfork. They will have complimentary beer and wine, hors d’oeuvres, bowling, bocce, and live music.
April 8 O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 will be happening at Texas Motor Speedway. Take the family and see your favorite Nascar driver race! You can purchase kids tickets for all kids 12 & under for $10.
Friday on the Green is back for its 10th season starting April 13 from 6 to 10pm. Bring the kids, hang out on the lawn, and enjoy some live music, tasty food and drinks, plus children’s activities and an artisan market. It is located at Magnolia Green, 1201 Lipscomb Street, Near Southside, and is free and one not to miss!
April 4 to 8 Disney on Ice is back at the American Airlines Center with their new show called Dare to Dream.
April 14 The whole family can help support a fabulous cause at the Victory Over Violence walk/run at the Trinity Park Duck Pond. They will also have a kid’s zone filled with activities for the little ones and a food/beverage area to get snacks, as well!
April 14 Do you have kids that like to get muddy? The upcoming Kids Obstacle Challenge will provide a chance for just that and more. They will have a course for all kids ages 5 to 16 with lots of mud! It’s a family adventure, and if parents choose, they can run with their kids for free!
April 20 to May 13 Casa Manana presents Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. They will also be hosting Tea with Belle! This is a chance to experience a tea party complete with tea, treats and a meet & greet with Belle. Characters from the show will wait on the guests. Tickets for the show and tea must be purchased separately and everyone must have a ticket to attend.
April 20 Support the Gladney Center for Adoption by attending Gladney Night at Six Flags over Texas from 5-10pm.
April 22 Amon Carter Museum of American Art is hosting An Afternoon with Texas Ballet Theater at 2pm. Watch a performance, tour the new exhibition A New American Sculpture, and learn a few ballet moves from the dances, too!
Finally, Goat Yoga is back in the Historical Stockyards. If you missed your chance last year, you are in luck. Bring the kids at 5:30 to meet the goats before the fun begins. They will also have live music, lawn games, a beer garden, food trucks and prize giveaways!
Hope this helps your family enjoy some fun activities this month. Have fun and stay safe everybody!
