With its acres of green grass and colorful beds and lakefront views, the Dallas Arboretum can make people feel like they’re visiting another city. But this year for the Dallas Blooms spring festival — when the grounds will feature more than 500,000 blooms, including tulips and daffodils — the arboretum folks want guests to get an international vibe. There’ll be music, dancing, vendors and other cultural activities each weekend at the International Festival, and each week will focus on a different region, starting with France. Other recurring events include Mommy and Me Mondays, Tiny Tot Tuesdays, Arts and Culture (Wednesdays) and Beverages of the World (Thursdays).
Join us at the International Crossroads Village, located in Pecan Grove, where we will share the cultures around the world. Weekly special activities include Mommy and Me Mondays, Tiny Tot Tuesdays, Arts and Culture (Wednesdays), International Festival (weekends) and Beverages of the World (Thursdays).
