Texas Independence Day is just around the corner and the Dallas historical society is helping everyone celebrate a little early this year by hosting a celebration at Fair Park.
The event will be located on the lawn of the Hall of State. Even though Texas Independence Day isn't until March 2, festivities will be held on February 28. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. you can enjoy games, activities and a cowboy chuck wagon. There will also be actors dressed in fashion from that time period ready to answer questions in character.
The event aims to take you back in time by having games that were typically played during the Texas revolutionary area. Celebration goers will also have a chance to get a taste of what life was like in the1830s with demonstrations of what a typical day looked like during this time. Demonstrations are only part of it if you're feeling extra festive you can even try your hand at churning butter.
There will also be an exhibit dedicated to the history of Texas. The exhibit will be filled with rare items from the Texas Revolutionary area but the main attraction includes a report written by Sam Houston on the Battle of San Jacinto.
The Dallas Historical Society has been around since 1922 with a mission to help preserve and educate people on Texas and Dallas history. This event is just the latest of their year around calendar and the best part is that it's free to attend.
If you can't make it to the celebration of the 28, there are two more celebrations happening this weekend. One will take place at Y.O. Steakhouse in downtown Dallas where there will be food traditional Texas crafts and more. You can also go to Oak Highlands Brewery on March 2 for good, Texas winning beer and music.
