2. L!VE on the Green at Watters Creek in Allen - September 25th
Tonight, Don't Tell Mama is performing from 6:30-9pm. They play music from the "past 4 decades, including Funk and Soul, R&B, Motown, some One-Hit Wonders from the 60’s, Disco and Dance music from the 70’s, Party and Dance music from the 80’s, and a few surprises from the 90’s and newer, throw in a little Latin and a little Jazz and you’ve got the Horn Band that keeps you rockin".
Admission is FREE, and be sure to take a blanket! Follow Watters Creek on Twitter.
3. Museum Day - September 26th. FREE admission to many local (and national) museums. You'll need to print off a free ticket, so be sure to read the linked post.
4. The State Fair of Texas starts today, September 25th, and runs through October 18th.
Be sure to CLICK HERE for a huge list of 2009 fair discounts, thanks Pegasas News. For instance today, you'll get $4 admission with a full 20 oz. Coke.
Another state fair tip, eat lunch or dinner at home and splurge on the desserts, like the fried butter!! Fried butter.....are they serious? This, I have to see!
Have a great (and frugal) weekend!!
