It's a Funny, Sunny, Honey Kind of Weekend

Thursday, August 30, 2018 11:00 AM by Carol Stoddard

Labor Day weekend is finally here, ready to close the book on another fun summer in Irving, Texas. Well, not so fast there Bub because the weather is still in the high 90's, so you can't really say that summer's over. Nevertheless, just what do you do with three days of great Texas weather? Yeah, I can see that honey-do list growing as we speak. Between the trips to the hardware store and washing your car after cleaning out the garage, I have a few alternatives for you. Take a look at these events and be glad I got you out of the house. And for more ideas, you should visit our other blogs to see what's cooking - or our website at

One Last Weekend

Goodbye Summer my old friend. Our time together has to end. Another school year is starting. Summer faded while I was sleeping.  And a vision of the pool is all that's left in my brain, it still remains, I've got another year of homework.

My apologies to Simon and Garfunkel for stealing their song, but I know it's how we all feel.  We want just one more weekend of summer vacation before we head back to school on Monday. Wait, we DO have one more weekend. So let's make the most of it. Listed below are several events that will help to ease the end of summer and welcome the beginning of a new school year here in Irving, Texas.  For more area events, please visit our website at
