January 19 / 18
Friday, Friday, Friday! I’ve been busy getting this post put together. Instead of one city, I’m combining two. Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. Here are some great cultural activities you can do if you decided to visit these two neighboring cities.

Here are a few things you can do in January. Posted by Jamina Tribbett for Visit Dallas
Hang out until midnight at the Dallas Museum of Art during Late Nights at the DMA on Jan. 19 for music, talks, films, gallery tours, kids’ activities and more. This month’s Late Night activities celebrate the museum’s birthday and explore the psychedelic world of Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama.
Take the kids on a trip to the Dallas Children’s Theater to see “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” show. Watch the illustrations of this beloved children’s book leap from the page to the stage in a bright display of color. The show will occur daily between Jan. 19 to Feb. 25.
Head to East Dallas for the KidFilm Festival at the Angelika Film Center and Café on Jan. 20-21. This two-day lineup of new and classic films for both children and adults also features special guests, readalongs and other fun activities. The tickets are completely free and available at the KidFilm box office one hour before each showtime.
Stop by the Nasher Sculpture Center to see “The Dramastics: A Punk Rock Victory Twister in Texas” exhibit, on display until Jan. 28. The elaborate scenes, made completely of paper and wire, depict the rise of a fictional punk rock band. It’s a display you must see for yourself.
