The dog days of summer are here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most out of this weekend; luckily, there are plenty of ways to do that. Kick things off by getting cultured at the Asian Film Festival of Dallas, or exploring the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. On Saturday, cool off at an ice cream challenge, and enjoy a view of the Dallas skyline at an awesome pool party on Sunday.
