  • Waxahachie Spring Showcase
    The Waxahachie Civic Center transforms into a yuletide village, sparing shoppers from Black Friday tussles and the hustle and bustle of malls at the Waxahachie Holiday Showcase. Those looking for stocking stuffers, or even stockings, can gander at the handiwork of more than 125 vendors whose original art, decorations, and crafts are certain to satisfy those who are hard to shop for. Eschewing the ho-ho-humdrum of mall Santas, the holiday showcase welcomes Cowboy Santa, who gladly poses for photos and shares ranching tips with folks on his "good" list. Attendees are welcome to bring their own cameras to capture each child or adult's two-minute session with Santa. The showcase also raises funds for non-profit organization, Greatest Generation Aircraft, who preserve the fleets that shaped our history.

  • Mudbug Madness Festival
    Since 1984, Shreveport has paid tribute to a cherished Louisiana tradition—the crawfish boil—with its annual Mudbug Madness Festival. As many as 56,000 people flock each day to what has blossomed into one of the state’s most popular Cajun festivals, where they nosh on succulent seafood and compete in crawfish-eating contests that encourage participants to test their stomach size and sabotage their opponents by sneaking lobsters into their bowls. “One year, we had a man eat 42 pounds of crawfish in 30 minutes,” marvels festival coordinator Melanie. “We’ve cut it down to 15 minutes since then.” In addition to eating crustaceans, attendees can also lure them across the stage during crawdad-calling contests. “It gets really lively,” Melanie says, describing how the sirens-in-training are allowed to do nearly anything they can think of to entice the crawfish into their reach. Cajun, zydeco, and jazz tunes waft through the air during the festivities, emanating from three stages helmed by headliners such as Wayne Toups, Rockin’ Dopsie, Jr., Super Water Sympathy, and Windstorm. The rhythms reach the ears of shoppers browsing original artwork and handmade jewelry in the arts area, expanded after previous years' success. On Thursday, local athletes can work up an appetite in the 5K race. Children of all ages burn off energy in the kids' area, where they can somersault in the bounce house, tackle art projects, or plop down in front of a stage where magicians and storytellers keep their young minds off the uncertain fate of lollipop futures.

  • Charli XCX & Bleachers
    To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.

  • Dallas Greek Picnic
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Dallas Greek Picnic facet_type_id: d62bc930-9532-1032-9f7f-6bee92475c52 html_text: |- Serving as a festive reunion for alumni and undergrads from across the Southwest, Dallas Greek Picnic gathers together members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council—the series of traditionally African American fraternities and sororities also known as the Noble Nine. At this annual three-day event, more than 5,000 attendees showcase their talents—and defend their chapter's pride—in activities such as basketball games, a DJ showcase, and a massive step-team competition hosted by R&B artist Keith Jacobs. Despite the competition, the weekend is an opportunity to rekindle old friendships and spark new ones. An afterparty and picnic gives everyone a chance to recuperate from the competitions and network with their fellow Greeks. Along with a large group service project, the event also helps support two local causes: revitalizing the southern sector of Dallas and donating gifts to the nearby Children's Medical Center.
