August may be winding to a close, but the summer fun is only beginning in Dallas. In a city that never sleeps, there is always a lot to do in Dallas and this weekend is no different.

From food trucks to Broadway musicals to Instagram-worthy photo shoots, here are five things to do in and around Dallas this weekend!



Hosted at Music Hall at Fair Park, WICKED brings the audience into the Land of Oz.

WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships. Until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked,” that is.

The original musical has a show on Aug. 28th at the Musical Hall at Fair Park. The musical, which is said to take the audience through the full emotional spectrum, will begin at 7:30 and is scheduled to have a run time of nearly three hours.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
