And speaking of dog days, you won't want to miss The Ranch at Las Colinas and DFW RescueMe's adoption event on Saturday. It'll be a howling good time. You can woof down a glass of beer or prosecco, and it's all for a good cause. I've also listed some other fun things to do in and around town. Or you can check out our website at irvingtexas.com. Stay cool!

Meet clever-as-they-come Ruth and pretty-as-a-penny Eileen! The Sherwood sisters are headed to the Big Apple to chase their dreams! The gals settle in a beat-up basement studio apartment in Greenwich Village, full of eccentric charm and frequently visited by a cascade of colorful characters, run by landlord Papa Appopolous. Ruth aspires to be a writer, while Eileen longs for the big lights of Broadway. It's the play that inspired the hit musical favorite Wonderful Town. Learn More
Here's an idea! Drop by the Irving Arts Center between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday to visit the Irving Farmer's Market, which really should be called the Irving Farmer's, Artisan's and Food Truck's Market.

The Fritz Park Petting Farm is a place where children of all ages can see animals up close and actually touch and pet them. It provides a peaceful setting where visitors can enjoy the animals in a clean, well-shaded environment. A variety of animals, such as cows, horses, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, rabbits and even peacocks, reside at the farm.
