Roses and Chocolate … Covered Insects and I Heart Bugs
The whole family can enjoy a Valentine’s evening with simultaneous kids and adult events at Texas Discovery Garden from 5:30–8pm. For $15 per child, ages 3 and older can make crafts, go on a butterfly house safari, and get a preview of summer camp at the gardens. Pizza dinner will be provided.
Parents can drink champagne in the Heirloom Rose Garden, get a rose straight from the garden and learn about rose pruning myths and insect reproduction. Take a tour through the butterfly house at sunset and eat hors d’oeuvres including the chocolate-covered insects. $35 each or $50 per couple.
Valentine’s Day at Klyde Warren Park
If you’ve not yet made it out to Dallas’ still-shiny deck park between Uptown and the Dallas Arts District, let Valentine’s be the day you say hello. Klyde Warren Park will be hosting a sweet event for families from 6–9pm with crooner Max Vontaine as the main attraction under the Muse Family Performance Pavilion (click here for a clip).
Food vendors will be nearby for cupcakes, cake balls, champagne (only for adults 21 and older, of course) and even flowers. Twirl your date and/or your kids on the lawn, let them roam the children’s park, and take a stroll through Jane’s Lane (a pathway with trees and archways, named after one lucky wife after 60 years of marriage).
Narnia – The Musical
If you’re not feeling the love but are looking for a little magic on Thursday night, take the family to Grapevine to see a cast of more than 70 fourth–12th grade students from Grapevine Faith Christian School in Narnia – The Musical, an adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, February 14–16. The performances feature aerial acrobatics, walking trees and an artist-created Aslan character, which the school is describing as similar to the life-sized puppets in War Horse. Tickets start at $18.
