Although winter in Plano, Texas, is relatively mild, there’s something about the warmer temperatures, fun activities, and exciting times that come with spring. During this time, the Plano community comes alive with tons of events that are perfect for all ages and interests. From fairs to concerts to kids’ activities, there’s no shortage of things to do. If you’re searching for a few ideas, here are some plans to add to your spring calendar in Plano.
Toyota Texas Music Revolution 2017
On March 24 and 25 of this year, Plano’s Oak Point Park and Nature Reserve will transform into one of the most exciting concert venues around. Now in its 21st year, the Texas Music Revolution, sponsored by Toyota and KHYI 95.3 The Range, celebrates country music by inviting many of its most famous acts, as well as up-and-coming artists, to play in front of the best fans in the world.
This year’s headliners include Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves, Josh Ritter, and Kiefer Sutherland Band just to name a few. With two stages and sweeping views of the surrounding nature preserve, there’s probably no better way to spend a weekend. Tickets start at $15 for Friday general admission, although the true country fan may prefer the VIP two-day pass, which provides exclusive parking, access to a bar, and the all-important VIP restrooms.
The Adult Easter Egg Hunt
Maybe you’ve never thought about how much you missed Easter egg hunts in your youth, but the Adult Easter Egg Hunt at the Heritage Farmstead Museum may just change that forever. At this event, you and several hundred other hunters will scour the museum’s four-acre complex to search for over 4,000 eggs. Each egg has a different prize, ranging from candy to small amounts of cash. However, several eggs have prizes worth several hundred dollars, making the $20 sign-up fee more than worth it.
The Adult Easter Egg Hunt is on March 31, 2017, with a rain-out date for April 7. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the festivities begin at 8:30 p.m. Afterwards, wine and light refreshments are available. You can register online or call 972-881-0140 to reserve your spot for this once-a-year extravaganza. All proceeds benefit the Heritage Farmstead Museum.
If you love the famous TED Talks series, TEDx Plano is a localized format that provides a forum for interesting speakers to talk about technology, entertainment, design, and other issues. On Saturday, April 8, the TEDx Plano series will return to the Courtyard Theater at 1509 H Avenue in downtown Plano. Speakers for this event include local students and business owners, as well as reporters, engineers, and psychologists from around the country.
This year’s talks consider just one question: “If one thing was different, what then?” Tickets are $75 for adults and $50 for students.
Planning your spring in Plano isn’t all that difficult if you know where to look. Whether you love live music, nostalgia, or something more enlightening and educational, Plano has something for you.
