A Great Weekend in Fort Worth

Now Town Rest assured, there’s always plenty to see and do in Fort Worth. While mainstays like the Stockyards National Historic District and Sundance Square are sure to amuse, the weekend of June 7-9 promises to impress with charms of its own. On Friday head out to Maverick Stadium at UT-Arlington for the Texas Scottish Festival and Highland Games, a celebration featuring a bagpipe contest, a dog show, and music and dancing. On Saturday morning treat yourself to a walk through the grounds of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden before going to the final round of the Van Cliburn Third International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs at Texas Christian University’s Ed Landreth Auditorium. Just before high noon on Sunday, find a good spot to see the flag-raising ceremony at the public grand opening of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame (see Even Cowgirls Get Their Due ). Then walk down Camp Bowie Boulevard to the newly renovated Amon Carter Museum for the last day of “Abstraction in Photography,” an exhibit featuring the works of twentieth-century artists such as Alfred Stieglitz, László Moholy-Nagy, and Mark Abrahamson (above, Strawberry Field #5, 1995). The only thing you’ll have to plan for yourself is when to take a nap. (See Fort Worth. )
