My Park Day

Join Friends of Northaven Trail at the Virginia Cooke Respite Area for this outdoor celebration. There’ll be zoo animals, food from the Hamburger Man and more, but you can also give back by helping with trail landscaping. The festivities start at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.

Jamming with Jason

Jason Michael is famous for singing the “Clifford the Big Red Dog” TV theme song, but he’s also an accomplished rhythm and blues musician. That means adults and children alike will probably enjoy his 11 a.m. musical story time at NorthPark Center.

Rocky Horror

Also on display is “Process and Innovation,” which features the work of two mid-20th century Texas artists Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner.
