This weekend has a lot of events going on! Here’s some of the best:

Nash Farm Fall Roundup – takes place at Nash Farm in Grapevine on Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free events has lots of stuff for kids, including stick pony barrel racing, a petting zoo, pony rides, blacksmith demos and more. They’re also having scarecrow contests (both living and homemade); find the entry form here.

Arbor Day Celebration – takes place at Traders Oak Park (1206 Samuels Ave., Fort Worth) on Saturday, Oct. 9, at 10 a.m. Arbor Day isn’t until next April, but the Fort Worth Parks Department is celebrating anyway. Come by for a “tour of trees,” which includes selected Fort Worth Heritage Trees in the Cultural District. This is a free event, too. The weather ought to be perfect for this.

DFW Toy and Diecast Show – Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MeadowBrook Recreation Center (1400 E. Dugan) in Arlington. See all kinds of toys, explore vendors’ wares and have a great time. If you’re on the hunt for a hard-to-find toy, this might be the place to discover it. Admission is $2 for everyone 13 and up, $1 for kids 6-12. Everyone under 6 gets in free. All children 13 and under will receive a free Hot Wheels Car.

Fort Worth Botanic Garden Plant Sale – spruce up your yard with new plants for fall. The Garden will sell perennials, native Texas plants, decorative grasses and more. This will be on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Garden is at 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd., about 1.5 miles west of downtown near I-30 and University. It’s free to come look, but of course, if you want a plant, you’ll need to fork over some cash. I’ve found the prices to be reasonable in past years.

After Dark in the Park – takes place Oct. 8-10 in Arlington; a family-friendly event. See our past post for more details.
