Things To Do This Week.

Get The Jump On Your 4/8 - 4/14 Plans.

It's looking like it's going to be a real feel-good week in Dallas. Among the things to do? Well, there's a pooch parade, a food truck rally and a craft fair. So what's not to be happy about? Nothing, that's what -- especially over at the Meddlesome Moth (where they'll be tapping various Texas craft brews all week in celebration of their second anniversary) and at next weekend's Big Texas Beer Fest in Fair Park. Plus, there's some good music in town too. From a surf rock king to Austin indie legends to a critical darling and a hot buzz band, there are huge concert options throughout the week.

Let's have some fun, y'all.

Deep Ellum Pet Parade at Bark Park
Well-behaved pooches are welcome to join the annual pet parade as part of the Deep Ellum Arts Festival. Costumes are encouraged.

A gourmet food truck rally so big they're shutting down Main Street.

Urban Street Bazaar at Bishop Arts
Get ready to sip, eat, and shop -- because the modern craft faire is back by popular demand.
