Mayfest | Fort Worth | May 2 – 5

For many Fort Worth residents, Mayfest is a 46-year-strong tradition; a chance to get outside and enjoy the Trinity before the tyrannical summer heat kicks in the door and punches you in the gut.

If you’ve never known this to exist, do yourself a favor and scurry over to funky town for the 2019 Mayfest. You’ll be doing some good too. Mayfest says their mission is to raise and contribute funds to enhance the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs. They’ve given more than $7.5 million to the Fort Worth community since 1973.

Savvy Savings: Mayfest is offering free admission on Thursday, May 2. Even after that, adult tickets are only $8.

Summer Movie Camp | AMC Theatres | All Summer

Parents – [in Jon Snow voice] Summer is coming.

White Walkers may not be bearing down upon you, but those hordes you call offspring will be after school lets out.

This year, focus on being a loving, compassionate, and understanding parent and connect with your child…by stuffing them in an A/C-chilled dark room where they’re not allowed to talk.

AMC is running their Summer Movie Camp and it’s a great way to get your brood of ingrates sweet children to just shut up for a second experience the art of cinema without taking on the 2nd mortgage going to the movies usually requires.
