This weekend in North Texas.


The State Fair of Texas

It's the last weekend of the State Fair - and to round it out, a tribute to Earth Wind and Fire to kick off the weekend on the Chevrolet Main Stage. Ifyou haven't gotten your annual Fletcher's Corny Dog and taken a ride on the Texas Star - you better hurry while there's still time! The fair closes on Sunday at 9pm.

Dior: From Paris to the World

With lavish embroidery, luxurious fabrics, and elegant silhouettes, Christian Dior's global influence is as enduring and iconic as ever. Dior: From Paris to the World surveys more than 70 years of the House of Dior’s legacy, featuring a dynamic selection of almost 200 dresses, as well as accessories, photographs, original sketches, runway videos, and other archival material. It's been in town since May but the exhibit closes on the 27th so this weekend is a perfect time to get out and soak it in before it's gone.
