While back to school is often associated with fall, here in Texas we know that we won’t be packing up shorts for at least 2 more months!
However, as the heat of summer pushes on, we can always dream about cooler (at least cooler than 100 degrees!) weather, fun fall activities spending time outside without being at risk of heat exhaustion.
And since it is always fun to have something to look forward to, we will outline fun fall activities that are taking place in Arlington and the surrounding Metroplex. Don’t worry, it won’t be too long until we can actually wear jeans and boots again!
Fall means football
September 8th kicks off the Cowboys regular season. You can hear fans around the area rejoice!
This week you can get a sneak peak at the season by visiting training camp. Training camp is a family friendly event that will highlight not only the players, but the infamous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and include activities for kids. Don’t forget to bring your autograph book to snag signatures from your favorite players! Admission and parking are free and open to the public for all practices and Back To Football events. Entry is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Six Flags Fright Fest
For those that are brave enough each year, Six Flags boasts a Halloween experience even to make the most hardcore fanatics jumpy. Enjoy thrills and activities for the whole family throughout the day and come back for a truly frightening evening of fun after the sun goes down.
Fright Fest offers a wide variety of places to get your scare on including several haunted houses and scare zones located throughout the park. It is recommended that your littlest ones visit the park during the daytime where more the fall festivities can be enjoyed.
Arlington Fall Festival
Get ready to experience all your pumpkin all the time at the Arlington Fall Festival. This is the inaugural year for this event, so let’s make it a great one! At this family friendly event, you will have the opportunity to visit a pumpkin path, bounce on moon bounces and scale climbing walls, get your face painted and choose food from local vendors. Taking place at the River Legacy Living Science Center, this is the perfect event to get you fully transitioned into fall mode!
Say “goodbye” to Globe Life Park
As the time to formally close the doors at Globe Life Park draws closer, what’s a better way to send out the stadium than with a Bill Joel concert?! The Ballpark in Arlington opened with a memorable rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner by internationally renowned pianist Van Cliburn and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra on Opening Day in 1994. And now it will close with a concert by Billy Joel.
The 2019 season will be the final one at Globe Life Park. The Rangers are planning to move into Globe Life Field right across the street for the ’20 season. With many great memories and baseball seasons behind us, come out and wish the park one final farewell.
