Summer is right around the corner and it is time to get out your calendars. I will be highlighting a variety of activities and events, so make sure to subscribe to my homepage.
Whether you are on a budget or just looking for something to do with those bored kiddos, outdoor movie screenings are the way to go. Fort Worth and many of the surrounding cities offer outdoor movie nights throughout the summer. These are all free and open to the public. So get your blankets and chairs ready and make plans now to attend these film screenings. All of these venues allow you to bring in your own blankets, or lawn chairs. Please note start times may vary depending on time of dusk.
