dallas green festival

Not really "For the Dude" I guess, but time was ticking.... a great event for the whole family THIS WEEKEND. What a fabulous way to learn more about going green in the city and a super fun way to spend a Saturday with the kiddos...
or maybe this would be the perfect opportunity "For the Dude" to take the kids while mama gets a much needed pedicure... oh, wait. did i say that out loud???

You're invited to the 3rd annual Dallas Green Festival, Saturday from 9 am to 2:30 pm!

We are excited to host more than 40 vendors, advocacy groups, artists and artisans to show you easy steps to green your lifestyle. Come out and enjoy crafts, music, a food court with 
Wendy Krispin Caterer, snacks in the vender area by Blue Mesa Grill, and more!
