From immersive art experiences to drive-through Halloween and dog parties, these are the best things to do in Dallas this weekend.
This Thursday, October 1, AURORA’s Area 3 exhibit opens inside the Dal Park Parking Garage (1600 Commerce Street) and will run through January 1, 2021. The immersive drive-through art experience features local artist Tramaine Townsend, Alicia Eggert, Julie Libersat, and more. Timed tickets are available for $30 per car.
Head to the American Airlines Center this Friday and Saturday for a special no-contact Drive-Boo Halloween. The family-friendly event is located in the AAC Silver parking garage, where the entire experience can be enjoyed from your own car. Filled with spooky characters and haunted-house vibes, there’s even a VIP upgrade option to give you access to the top-floor experience, which is a bit scarier and less kid-friendly. Tickets are available here.

This Saturday, bring your pup to MUTTS Canine Cantina for the first annual Woofstock event. From 11 am to 9 pm, guests and their furry friends can expect live music, food, drinks (with beer from Rahr & Sons), and more.
