Uptown Block Party
Uptown is turning 25 this year, and the neighborhood is celebrating with its 3rd annual block party! The headliner for the free concert is the hit pop/rock band Bowling For Soup. Food trucks, beverages, and games will be provided. Bring chairs or blankets to sit down on the lawn, or prepare to dance the night away.
Griggs Park | October 18 | 6 p.m.-10 p.m.
Howl-O-Ween at Mutts Canine Cantina
This unusual combination dog park, outdoor eatery and bar is offering a particularly enticing event this fall. Bring your pup in his best costume, and let him strut his stuff! It might just win you a year-long Mutts membership, a Mutts gift card, or some awesome Mutts swag. It’s the 6th annual Howl-O-Ween for Mutts and this year there will be specialty drinks along with four celebrity judges: Scooby the Corgi, Nelson the Golden-doodle, Walter the Wolfhound and Lennon the Yorkie. Keep these categories in mind as you dress your dog: funniest costume, most creative costume, and best overall costume.
Mutts Canine Cantina | October 20 | 12 p.m. and later
Oaklawn Halloween Block Party
Just northeast of Uptown, another block party is in the works. The weekend before Halloween, take part in a costume parade and enjoy live music, food, beer, and other refreshments. Roundup Saloon, the best gay, country western dance hall in the country, will be decked out in full Halloween style, and select performers from the Rose Room will appear!
Cedar Springs Block 3900 | October 27 | 7 p.m.-2 a.m.
Dallas Bike Ride
This 20-mile, totally car-free cycling event is one of the best in the city. Any and all riders can participate, so bring your crew! The ride is meant to give residents and visitors an expansive look at Dallas’ culturally rich neighborhoods, including Uptown. Bike at a relaxing pace and enjoy the beautiful city skyline, or engage in a convivial race against your friends. Either way, you’ll cross the finish line in front of City Hall and find yourself in a party all its own. Live entertainment, refreshments, and fun activities await you. Exclusive tip, just for us Uptowners: Use the promo code UPTOWN18 for discounted registration.
All Over Dallas | November 3 | 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
