  • Celina Balloon Festival
    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.

  • Various comedians
    Like the finale of a long-running sitcom where the leads finally kiss, Brew-HaHa marries two things that should have been together from the start: standup comedy and craft beer. Armed with a refillable pint glass, guests start the night with a brief tour of local craft breweries, including Dallas's Community Beer Company, the Lakewood Brewing Co. in Garland, and Ft. Worth's Panther Island Brewing. After getting a good fill of local nectar, everyone settles in for a set that mixes headliners seen on Comedy Central, HBO, and Showtime with some of North Texas' top jokesters. Although the lineup constantly changes, the night is always hosted by Tyson Faifer, who may or may not hang from the ceiling by his knuckles like he did on NBC's American Ninja Warrior.

  • Shakespeare Dallas
    The works of William Shakespeare are timeless, and since 1971, Shakespeare Dallas has been a part of their rich theatrical tradition. From their roots as a summer company and their first, somewhat modest production—a one-man take on Hamlet —the organization has evolved to produce cultural events year-round. During the summer, skilled actors perform the Bard’s plays in the open air. When autumn arrives, Shakespeare on the Go! brings artists to schools to share age-specific, interactive programs. And through all seasons, Shakespeare Unplugged meets the community’s recommended iambic pentameter intake with staged readings and insightful lectures.

  • Hartford Comic Con
    Despite its name, the Hartford Comic Con doesn't just celebrate comics—it dives headfirst into the multiverse of pop culture. The two-day event brings together fans and artists from film and TV, gaming, comics, and genre literature for a chance to learn and revel in fandom at the same time. Special guests—from celebrity stars of sci-fi and fantasy TV and film to the artists of beloved comic book runs—headline the convention. Guest artists from a range of titles and nearly 60 independent artists in the Artist Alley are also on hand to show off their ink-based works. Celebrities from both of those worlds participate in panel discussions. The Comic Con is also interactive: a cosplay contest gives visitors a chance to show off their creativity and attention to detail, while kid-friendly workshops let little ones enjoy arts and crafts.

  • 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.
