These Things to do in August will keep Summer with us, even when the School year starts!

As the temperatures really hit their North Texan highs, we have tons of ideas for things to do inside and outside around Dallas, Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Allen and surrounding cities in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.

You don’t want to miss the Live Music and Concerts this month in the area as we close out the Summer and get ready for September.

For events happening each weekend, we have a Round up for you.
