Stonewall Jackson Carnival

Fall is here, and that means the Stonewall Carnival will be entertaining neighbors with booths, carnival rides, cake walks, and much more. Guests can buy wristbands for $25 that cover all booths and games, and food can be purchased during the carnival. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Dallas PorchFest is this Saturday, and will feature 17 bands, more than 55 artists, a dozen local food and beverage purveyors and fall fun, such as a pumpkin patch.

Porchfest will take place at Buckner Park at 4550 Worth St., and will coincide with the grand opening of the new park as well as tours of The Principal, a residential development under way in the adjacent David Crockett School.

Knock out your fall family pictures along the yellow brick road at the Dallas Arboretum’s Wizard of Oz pumpkin patch.
