Fall Block Party in One Arts Plaza Dallas – Oct 14th

7 Oct

Recently Mother Nature decided to slash our temperatures in half (making our usual lows higher than our average highs); the State Fair is open for business, and football season is in full effect with the Red River Rivalry and chaos at the Cowboy Stadium, which can only mean one thing – FALL is upon us! Even though we know this kind of cool weather could only last so long in Texas, we’ll enjoy it while we can. One way to do this is by having outdoor events to help our bodies adjust to the change in season before going into full shock. DFW Fall festivals are being planned all across the metroplex and the Dallas Arts District is no different. Sunday, October 14th they will be having a FALL Block Party at One Arts Plaza. From noon to 4pm North Texans of all ages can enjoy cinnamon flavored and pumpkin spiced treats, 5 featured plaza chefs and a variety of specialty food vendors. You can look forward to more than just tasty food though. There’s something new to look forward to each hour of the party. Take a look at the schedule for the 3rd Annual FALL Block Party in One Arts Plaza.
