There's just something about the German vehicle that breeds rabid enthusiasm and inspires "I Love My VW" bumper stickers. For those who've appointed their Volkswagen as sole inheritor in their will, or those who just want to camp out by the water while enjoying live music, food, drinks, and celebrity appearances, the first annual Volk Swaggin on the Lake festival brings a weekend of joy and relaxation to Sycamore Bend Park. Once campers pitch their tents on Friday, they're ready to feast upon Saturday and Sunday's buffet of entertainment. Saturday features a Q&A with former Dallas Cowboy Cory Procter, who tackles questions about his NFL days and his love of heavy metal music. The rest of the day is filled with a variety of acts, including Cathy & Co's belly dancing, fiddle champion Aaron Mingus, classic rockers Dusty Vinyl, and the Led Zeppelin cover band Swan Song. Sunday brings the VW-only car show, in which aficionados gander at various Volkswagen makes and models before a panel of judges awards the prime picks of the lot.

  • WineFest 2012
    The 500, Inc.'s name stems from its very first fundraising campaign in 1965. Setting out to raise $5,000 for the Dallas Civic Opera, founder Polly Lou Moore convinced 500 individuals to each donate $10. It took only three months to collect every dollar. Since then, The 500, Inc. has aided more than 40 of the area's visual-, theatrical-, and musical-arts organizations by raising more than $12 million in donations and countless hours of volunteer support—all helping to honor the legacy of those first 500 mustaches doodled over Alexander Hamilton’s portrait.

  • Shredtoberfest
    Some towns have Oktoberfest, but only Little Elm, Texas has Shredtoberfest. The annual event rings in the National Wakeboard Points Chase, a wakeboarding competition that challenges its participants to perform ollies and air tricks as they soar above the waters at Hydrous Wake Park. In between sips of craft beers and bites of bratwurst and polish sausage, attendees enjoy the festival's activities, which include raffles, games, and giveaways and opportunities to hop on paddleboards or jump around in bounce houses. Guests can even enter the kicker contest, showing off their airborne skills while clad in their finest lederhosen wetsuits.
