October kicks off one of the busiest times of the year; the Holiday season. Lucky for us, Denton likes to take each holiday month in grand stride, with events nearly every weekend to keep us steadily shopping, imbibing and connecting with our Downtown neighbors. Below are a few of our favorite spooky and groovy events we think you should add to your weekend schedule.
Sundays in October, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm Every Sunday afternoon in October, enjoy a relaxed atmosphere of fresh air and great live music before the work week begins alongside friends, family, and fellow Dentonians.
