Fun in the Fort: May 2018
Wondering what to do with your family in Fort Worth in the month of May? Check out my top recommendations of what not to miss!
Those of you who have lived in Fort Worth for a while know that Mayfest is the most fun family friendly festival in town! It is so large that you can come back day after day for more! From May 3rd through 6th, there will be three dedicated music stages playing live music of every genre, the Tom Thumb/Albertsons Children’s Area with more than 20 free activities geared toward children ages 3 to 12, the Midway, the giant human maze, and the zip line. This is always so much fun, and the money that is raised goes to enhancing our Trinity River and surrounding parks and community.
The Clearfork Spring Market is happening on Saturday, May 12th beginning at 8am. The family-friendly outdoor event will have merchants, artisans, free family activities, and yard games to enjoy in addition to your favorite farmers market vendors you can usually find there.
On Saturday, May 12th, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden is hosting Mother’s Day High Tea from 2 to 4 pm. Treat your mom, wife, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, or friend with a selection of teas, finger sandwiches, pastries, and sweets. Live harp music and beautiful views of the historic rose garden will be an afternoon she’ll never forget. Reserve your tickets, as seating is limited.
Beauty and the Beast is still showing at Casa Manana until May 13th. Get tickets soon because you don’t want to miss it!
Beginning May 26th the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History presents Grossology. Explore the slimy side of humans and animals through fun interactive and oozy exhibits. Bring the whole family and learn something new in a fun way!
Finally, it’s time for the Fort Worth Invitational at the Colonial. The PGA tour returns May 21st through 27th. Grab a spot on the green of your favorite hole or follow your favorite player through the course. It’s a great way to introduce young ones to golf while enjoying the sport yourself.
That wraps it up for May. Have fun and stay safe everybody!
