Events Upcoming

We Fort Worthians are proud of our Zoo. It's easily the best in the DFW area, arguably the best in the state, and ranks fairly well nationally.
If you like to run and you like the zoo, consider joining about 1,000 others for the Fort Worth Zoo Run, 5k and 10k. It's a good event for a good cause. If you don't run but would like to get involved they do need volunteers.

April 19 / Fort Worth Zoo Run / $25

Baseball is back. Today in Arlington.

Today, Tuesday is opening day at the Ballpark in Arlington. And for food lovers (quantity, not quality) the Ballpark now has "all you can eat" seats. How many trays of nachos with jalapenos can you eat?

Merle Haggard / Bass Hall / April 9.

If I could choose a singing voice with the right blend of timber and soul it might be Merle Haggard's. Besides his voice, I think he has a song or two that approaches real beauty. Merle's coming to Bass Hall, Wednesday, April 9. Merle Haggard is described by Rolling Stone magazine as "the greatest country artist of our time." I happen to agree.

And this weekend is the next symphony concert, all Beethoven: the 5th Piano Concerto and the 5th Symphony. If you don't know, the Dallas Morning News has been the FW Symphony better reviews than the DSO.
