The best summer memories are made with friends and family. But when Texas temperatures start reaching triple digits, it can be hard to find fun outdoor activities – aside from the pool – that don’t leave you sweltering. That’s why we put together a list of great ideas for the evening when temperatures are somewhat cooler!
KXT 91.7 FM has handpicked eight national and local acts to play at the Dallas Arboretum this summer, so you can watch the sun set over White Rock Lake while enjoying live music.
First Friday, CampusTown Waco, the Waco Hippodrome and Magnolia Market are collaborating to host summer movies at the Silos. The next movie showings are Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory on August 3 and The Wizard of Oz on August 31.
Explore local vendors for great food and shopping every first Friday of the month. While the event goes on all day, businesses will stay open late so you can go in the evening to avoid the heat!
The King of Rock n’ Roll is in the building! Come out to see Elvis impersonator Travis Powell at the Liberty Hall Theater at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 21.
Watch hot air balloons fill the sky while enjoying live music with your loved ones. 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Great Texas Balloon Race, and you won’t want to miss this world-class event from July 28-30.
Spend Saturday, August 26 at one of the largest music festivals in Waco, tasting salsa and sipping margaritas. Enjoy live performances by Cody Jinks, Randy Rogers and Jon Wolfe.
Already dreading the back to school shopping rush? Have no fear! You can help prepare your kids for the school season by attending this annual event on Thursday, August 3 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at the Harvey Convention Center. The event gives families a host of resources to prepare for the new school year, ranging from haircuts to immunizations, from backpacks to information on school bus routes.
We hope you have a great time with your friends and family enjoying an event near you. For another way to cool off in the evening, make an appointment to give blood at Carter BloodCare during our extended summer hours!
