One of the most expected festivals for Dallasites during springtime is Dallas Blooms. To kick off this year's gigantic floral extravaganza, Dallas Arboretum is hosting a Blooms, Boots & BBQ Fest in February and it promises to be a blast.
This is the biggest floral festival in Texas, so get ready to get lost among over 100 varieties of spring-blooming bulbs exploding with color including 500,000 tulips and hundreds of thousands of other flowers.
The Blooms, Boots and BBQ Fest will feature tons of yummy BBQ food vendors, dance performances, fun line dancing lessons, music (of course), and a boot contest, so make sure to bring your best pair.
Chef Lisa will be doing a cooking demo to show festival-goers how to prepare some Texas-inspired dishes.
Now we can say this is going to be a party that would make any Texan proud.
You can join the fun for free, you only have to pay the admission ticket to the Dallas Arboretum, which is $12.
Be the first to discover this year's Dallas Blooms and join the two-day fun on February 29 and March 1. Both days from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The BBQ vendors will be offering tasty treats to all the attendees, but besides that, you will be able to jam out to two different bands each of the two days of the fest.
The Powell Brother will play on Saturday and For Love and Country on Sunday. As for dance performances, The Lake Highlands Wranglers will be performing on Saturday and SMU Mustang Mavericks will perform both days.
Concerts will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage & Lawn.
Make sure to stroll the Dallas Arboretum to take some pics and selfies with the gorgeous floral background, but spare some time for the boot contest.
With your admission, you can enter the “These Boots Are Made for Walking” contest, in which the person with the most unique pair of boots "will win a pack of four concert tickets to a Cool Thursdays Concert," according to the event page.
Every activity of this cool Dallas festival will be happening at the Main Garden. Take into account that parking at The Dallas Arboretum is $10-$15 depending on the time of day.
