Listed as a don’t-miss event by the Plano Profile, Four Funny Females garners guffaws with its stars’ distinct takes on life. Showcasing four unique comic sensibilities, like the Beatles or Three Men and a Baby, the 90-minute standup show features a tech geek, southern belle, brash blonde, and off-kilter brunette commenting on an array of life experiences, from online dating and religion to talking squirrels. Laura Bartlett, producer and creator of the show, is joined onstage by Backdoor Comedy Club owner Linda Stogner and Improv's "Funniest Comic in Dallas" finalists Jodi Hadsell and Sherry Belle, ensuring that audiences are in fully qualified funnymaking hands.
Whether grounded or airborne, balloons dominate the festivities at Old Celina Park. On the ground, the vibrantly patterned balloons glow and undulate as propane burners pump them with hot air. These bright shapes slowly diminish to colorful specks in the sky as the balloons ascend, leaving the fairgrounds far behind.
With this canopy of colored dots overhead, the festival’s entertainment comes alive as musical acts such as the Emerald City Band performing on Friday and Eleven Hundred Springs performing on Saturday take the stage. Pristine cars and trucks made as early as the 1930s shine at the classic-car show, inflatables promote adrenaline rushes along with helicopter rides, human hamster balls, a 200 ft. zip line, a western show, more than 100 vendors, and carnival rides and dog adoptions in Adoption Alley tug on heartstrings. In the evening, when the balloons that have served as a backdrop all day finally land, each pilot contributes to the balloon glow, punctuating the dusk with jets of flame from their burners to illuminate their vessels.
Sponsored by Dr. Pepper, the Dallas Cup XXXII excites audiences by providing a soccer showcase for the world’s most talented youth players. Over the course of seven days, teams from seven age groups will compete for a Dallas Cup championship with the hopes of etching their name in tournament history, leaving with international bragging rights and increased odds for future hacky sack careers. Delight in the family-friendly atmosphere of Pizza Hut Park while future soccer stars pass, dribble, and headball paneled orbs past the outstretched arms of leaping goalies and overzealous parents. Several games will be decided on each day of the tournament, and fans can consult the schedule to see when games will be played.
