Spring into downtown Denton for the fun shopping and entertainment

It’s a great time to be outdoors in north Texas and historic downtown Denton offers the perfect activities for taking it all in this spring.  The downtown merchants of the Denton Main Street Association (DMSA) invite you to enjoy shopping, dining, and a fashion show during the Spring Open House weekend May 5th and 6th.  Many shops will be open extended hours and will be offering specials to their clients, such as refreshments, discounts, and drawings for prizes.  

DMSA will also host a fashion show at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 5th, on the Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square lawn, 110 W. Hickory St.  This is an eye-catching, entertaining way to give shoppers an impression of what Downtown businesses have to offer.  Apparel, shoes, jewelry and accessories, and childrens' wear will be modeled in the show from various shops participating in the Spring Open House weekend.  At the Fashion Show, be sure to pick up your special discounts passport with offers from some of the participating businesses.  Completed passports will be entered into a drawing.    

Also, kids can enjoy facepainting and a free bouncehouse provided by Lone Star GO Pages after the fashion show until 3 p.m. Saturday. Spring photos by Robin Gansle Photography will be available from 12:30 to 4 p.m. on the courthouse lawn ($20 fee).

The Twilight Tunes concert series starts May 3rd, setting the tone for the weekend every Thursday night in May and June.  The concerts, presented by the Denton Main Street Association, are free and take place on the Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square lawn, 110 W. Hickory Street from 6:30 to 8 p.m..  

Bring your friends and family, get a meal-to-go from one of the many downtown eateries, bring a blanket or chairs, and enjoy an evening of great live music as the sun sets over downtown Denton.  The 2012 Twilight Tunes series offers an eclectic assortment of music for all listeners.  Thursday Twilight Tunes is the perfect way to kick off the weekend early and listen to some of the best local bands in the Denton area.
