DALLAS- It’s time for pool parties, tan lines and ice cream. That’s right, with the official start of summer only a day away, Dallas people are partying the night away at this year’s Summer Block Party in the Dallas Arts District.

Folks enjoyed free admission to the Dallas Museum of Art, The Crow Collection of Asian Art, and The Nasher Sculpture Center. The museums were opened Friday night from 6p.m. through midnight.

“Why go to the pool, there’s a water park here where the kids can play in the water and the key thing is free, free, free,” Michelle Daniels said. She and her family enjoyed the festivities Friday night.

There was plenty of grub to go around, too. It was the crossroad of sweet and savory, along the street where food trucks lined-up.

“To get out with my family and the food trucks is good,” five-year-old Richaad Daniels said.

Hey, these guys know how to throw a party; filled with plenty of late-night fun for the young, and the young at heart.

“The Dallas Arts District is an ideal destination for families because whether you are eight or 80-years-old,” Catherine Cuellar, CEO of the Dallas Arts District said.

“Every time you come here, you are gonna learn something new and have fun doing it.”

With the dog days of summer ahead of us, bringing in the heat with some cool tunes isn’t a bad way to start.
