Dallas March 2-4
What started as a big party in 1983 has grown to a festival of massive proportions todayeach year, some 75,000 people don their finest green apparel and head to Fair Park to celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the largest Irish festival in the southwest. The weekend is filled with live Irish music, Celtic myth storytellers, a bevy of Irish cuisine from local chefs, sheep herding and horse demonstrations, and plenty of canines dressed up for the holiday-many Irish dogs will be available for adoption from local shelters.

San Antonio March 3
The Alamo City celebrates its 300th birthday in 2018a yearlong fte involving nearly 700 partner events that celebrate not only the past, but also the city's present and future. In honor of the past, the Witte Museum, which is dedicated to South Texas heritage, history, and science, will unveil a Tricentennial exhibit this month. The word choice, confluence, is an intentional double entendre, as it represents the joining of cultures that has happened for so many centuries at the confluence of the San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek. The exhibit runs through Jan. 6, 2019.
