Summer Fun in Irving - June 24-26

Friday, June 24, 2016 2:00 PM by Carol Stoddard

Do you remember as a kid how excited you were on the last day of school?  You could hardly concentrate as you said your goodbyes, talked about what you were doing that summer, or where you were going.  You couldn’t wait for the bell to ring before you bolted out the door, ready to embrace summer like a long lost love.

That excitement can be recaptured right here in your home town of Irving.  This weekend’s line up of events will bring back the sounds, smells and tastes of your childhood summers.  Check out the fun below and be sure to tag us at #visitirving when you post your selfies.

Father's Day Weekend in Irving

Friday, June 17, 2016 5:45 PM by Carol Stoddard

What does your Dad mean to you? It’s a fair enough question. And it’s a simple question really.  How do you feel when you think about your Dad? We asked this question to our male co-workers and received a myriad of answers.  But do you know that when we asked these same men, all of whom are fathers themselves, what they would want most as their Father’s Day gift from their own children, we received the same answer - time spent together with their family. Time spent before the kids grow up and leave.  Time spent while you can still shape their minds and enrich their souls. Time spent with those you love and who love you.  Time is finite; it cannot be replaced.


Now, if your family is like my family, we love to spend time together EATING.  And how fortunate we are that there are so many great restaurants in town from which to choose. To find a restaurant to treat your Dad on Father’s Day, click here. Then to extend your time together, you can also take in a concert or play, or attend any of these events our fine city has to offer.  

Just know that a year, even five years from now, he may not remember the wrapped gift you gave him, but he’ll certainly remember the memories you made together.
