Make The Most Of The Weekend With Your Family

family at museumIs winter finally here? While we have been bouncing between 70-degree highs and 20-degree lows, it seems like this weekend is going to be consistently chilly. We know it is tempting to spend the days bundled up under blankets, nursing a hot chocolate in front of the fire, but there is also a lot of fantastic family-friendly events occurring across the metroplex. Bust out your favorite scarf and beanie because, in this week’s community blog, Family Home Loan Texas highlights some of the premier events happening around North Texas this weekend.

KidFilm Festival

The 38th annual KidFilm Family Festival is the oldest and largest all-ages film festival in the country, and it is filled with educational and fun flicks that will keep the whole family engaged. It takes place at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas and runs on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to movies, there will be free books and time set aside for viewers to discuss the films being shown. A lot of films — both short and long — so make sure you check out the schedule before venturing out. The tickets are free, but seating is limited so be sure to get there early.


From now until the end of January, Hadestown is being performed at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas, TX. This musical tells two tales from ancient mythology and won eight Tony Awards — including best musical. Before the shows, there will be a delicious buffet from Wolfgang Puck Catering, so make sure to get there early to enjoy the tasty meal. You can learn more and purchase your tickets here.
