Make it a great weekend in D-FW!

Tune into NBCDFW on Thursdays or Saturdays and you'll find regular Dallas Morning News segments where we pick the most exciting weekend events. There is a lot to do in D-FW; and here's where you can find all our recommended events this weekend.

Here are favorites for the week:

Big Tex Choice Awards

If you're a kid at heart. Hit up the Water Balloon War in Deep Ellum on Sunday. This isn't actually for kids; you have to be 18 and up.

If you're as excited as we are about the State Fair of Texas. The winners of the annual fried food contest will be named on Sunday. Check back with us to know which ones should land on your Must Eat list once the fair opens Sept. 25.

If you have kids. Check out Sunday Funday at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth.

If you like good music and good people. Local bands Pentatonix and Kelly Clarkson are performing the same night, on the same stage. That's some serious D-FW star power. It's Sunday at Gexa.

Get yourself to Deep Ellum on Sunday for the Water Balloon War.
