May Brings Festivals

Slather the family in sunscreen and get your walking shoes on—it’s Mayfest time again. The annual ritual offers up a heady dose of Vitamin D, plus 33 acres worth of activities for the whole family at Trinity Park in Fort Worth, 2401 University Drive between Thursday and Sunday. Events include a 1, 5 or 10K run, paddleboating, ziplining, duck races, carnival rides, petting zoos, and an entire kids’ zone worth of games and other diversions. Three dedicated live music stages will feature almost 60 hours worth of performances, with something for everyone. An arts and gift market will be set up for your shopping/viewing pleasure, and a bevvy of beer booths and food stations will keep your appetite sated. Make plans to attend between 3:30 and 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday; and from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 for adults ages 13 and up; $5 for seniors and kids 3 to 12; and free for the 2 and under set. Family passes for up to five people are also available for $25.
