Here are a few events we're looking forward to here in the DFW area!
Coming up at the end of the month is Nightmare Nights! With the new My Little Pony movie that just came out in theaters, this one is bound to be a huge hit with local bronies in the area. Unforunately this will be the last Nightmare Nights in DFW until someone else is able to take over the planning. The current convention heads are moving away and will not be able to organize this event again until other convention planners are able to take this over. Check out more info and registration information about Nightmare nights here at their website! http://nightmarenights.net/
The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens has been holding a Japanese festival twice a year every year for quite a number of years actually! It is held in their own Japanese Gardens, where you will see and maybe even take part in the traditional tea ceremony, watch live performances of music, martial arts, and dancing! A great place to wear your yukata and take pretty pictures in the Japanese Garden. Check out the website for more information. http://www.fwbg.org/events/2016/11/5/japanese-garden-fall-festival
The Otsukimi Moon Viewing Festival was originally scheduled for October's full moon but due to bad weather conditions this event has been re-scheduled to Saturday November 4th, still planned to be at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. Check it out, there will be Japanese Bentos, performances, origami, and more! https://www.visitdallas.com/things-to-do/events/view/4056/Otsukimi-Moon-Viewing-festival.html
Anime North Texas has been growing in numbers for a couple of years now, still a newer convention but it has plenty to offer and the best maid cafe experience for any convention in the area that I have experienced. This year it is going to be in the Irving Sheraton DFW hotel in mid November. Check out their website for more information and to pre-register! http://animenorthtexas.com/
