Spring Into Fun This Weekend!

Thursday, March 28, 2019 10:00 AM by Carol Stoddard

Shake off the winter and Loco-motion into Spring this weekend with some great Motown hits and more! The line up of live music listed below is sure to get you outdoors and enjoying this beautiful weather here in Irving.  Dine out on the patio listening to a variety of tunes or move to the groovy music of Spectrum, the Motown Men.  It's a great weekend to explore Irving's music scene.

Irving is in the heart of the DFW Metroplex and while most may think of BBQ brisket and Tex-Mex when they think Texas they will soon learn that Irving boasts an incredibly diverse and eclectic taste.

Irving’s population is thriving with “transplants”, like myself, and those visiting from the east and west coasts and the gulf region are in for a surprise!  The city prides itself with some incredible seafood restaurants and many have adopted a Cajun cuisine others fly in fresh seafood weekly.  Let’s DIVE in!
