Mother's Day in Downtown Fort Worth

May 13

Have you made your Mother's Day plans for this year? We've got a couple of ideas to make it the best one yet. Pick up her favorite flowers from Flowers To Go, and some chocolates from Schakolad Chocolate Factory while you're at it. Make your reservation ahead of time at one of the many delicious Downtown restaurants, or reserve a seat at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel's Mother's Day Brunch. Spend the afternoon shopping the wide variety of Downtown stores for a gift she'll love. (Tip: Purchase a Sundance Square gift card ahead of time, and put it in her Mother's Day card to surprise her with a shopping spree!) Stop by Sundance Square Plaza and relax at a patio table, then head down Main Street to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful Fort Worth Water Gardens. You are sure to give her a Mother's Day she will never forget!

Swan Lake

May 25-27

Texas Ballet Theater will bring the magic of Swan Lake accompanied by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to Bass Performance Hall this month. This classic ballet tells the story of Princess Odette who is transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer, with a spell that can only be broken by a vow of eternal love. A show suitable for all ages, Texas Ballet Theater offers a “wiggle room” for youngsters to wiggle and giggle while you can still see the performance through a window or TV screen. Learn more here.
