Get The Jump On Your 3/3 – 3/9 Plans.
Here's hoping you're not easily irritated by the term “festival season.” Because, almost certainly, you're going to hear it hundreds and hundred of times in the coming weeks and months.
And it all kicks off this week, too, as North Texas fully delves into that time of year where there's a festival around every corner. The biggest of those fests — and the unofficial start to the so-called season — kicks off this Thursday with 35 Denton's so-called “best ever fest ever” offering.
