6) Fall Plant Sale & Mariposa Market at Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Fort Worth Botanic Gardens has combined two of their most popular events to bring you two days of fun for the whole family. Honor the Hispanic heritage at our second annual Mariposa Market, with performances by Ballet Folklorico de Fort Worth, Inc., and while you are here pick up some fall color for your flower beds at the Fall Plant Sale.
7) Jack Ingram at Billy Bob’s Texas
There are many poster children for Texas Country, and Jack Ingram is at the top of that list. Jack will feature songs from his new album Midnight Motel. Midnight Motel is Jack’s 8th studio album, and his first since his 2009 smash Big Dreams & High Hopes, Midnight Motel features spare, stripped-down instrumental arrangements that highlight the intimacy and urgency of such new originals as “I’m Drinking Through It,” “Nothing to Fix,” “Can’t Get Any Better Than This,” and “All Over Again.” The album’s organic late-night vibe is perfectly suited to the material, and brings out the emotional edge in Ingram’s deeply felt vocals. It’s new music and the fun energy of Jack Ingram on the Billy Bob’s Stage. Don’t miss it!
