This Weekend // September 24-27

Thursday, September 24, 2015

The last weekend in September sure is packed with all kinds of fun events and parties here in DFW. Besides watching lots of football, I'm thinking about lying low and spending the cool-ish evenings outside with friends at the Woodshed but chances are I'll pop in to Rahr or Panther Island Oktoberfest to join in the German-influenced festivities. Happy weekend, everyone!

Panther Island Oktoberfest // Sept. 24-26
If you missed out on Addison's Oktoberfest last weekend, don't worry! Fort Worth has you covered. Starting this Thursday, you can partake in German shenanigans including barrel rolling, stein hoisting, and 5k and much more at Fort Worth's Oktoberfest. Of course, don't forget about the food and BEER. Giant soft pretzels, crepes, and sausage are the fare of choice this weekend. The weather looks to be pretty decent this weekend, too!

Rahr Oktoberfest // Sept. 26
Another Oktoberfest celebration not to be missed takes place this Saturday at Rahr & Sons Brewing! The day's events include a 5K, stein hoisting (I guess this is a thing?), costume contest, and of course beer drinking and lots of fine German cuisine.

State Fair of Texas // Sept. 25-Oct. 18
It's here, it's here! The State Fair of Texas officially opens this Friday. I didn't go last year so I am hoping to squeeze in a visit this fall, if only to check out the new list of fried fair foods (Deep Fried Tailgate Party? Pumpkin Spice Donut Chips? S'More Beer??), take a ride on the gigantic ferris wheel, and, oh, I can't forget about seeing Big Tex himself!

Day in the District // Sept. 26
On this day only, 10 museums in Fort Worth's Cultural Museum District waive admission fees and open their doors to the public for free! Wander the halls of The Modern or the Kimbell and see some amazing art pieces or take the kiddos to the Science and History Museum and see the planetarium!

Party on the Porch at the Amon Carter Museum // Sept. 26
This free event takes place from 5pm-10pm at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth. Enjoy live music, a photo bus, t-shirt screen printing, and food from Taco Heads, Gypsy Scoops and more! This sounds like a pretty fun time in my book!

Lunar Eclipse Viewing at the Museum of Science and History // Sept. 27
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is hosting a viewing party for the Total Lunar Eclipse. The event starts at 7:30pm and runs until a little after midnight. I think this would be so cool to see and witness with other star (er--moon) gazers.
