Looking for something cool to do with your family this weekend?  It’s tax-free weekend, but I hear the stores are mobbed and not much fun, so below are five great options that don’t involve the mall!  For more check the PAM Calendar, and the Stuff To Do page has lots of ideas too!


Friday Night Slides
Hawaiian Falls, The Colony
Friday 8-10pm
During this one-of-a-kind after dark event, each Hawaiian Falls remains open between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. so you can enjoy select favorite water slides in the dark! Kona Kooler Lazy River and Breaker Bay wave pool will remain open throughout twilight allowing you to splash around until sundown. Then, select slides will be featured with additional lighting for Friday Night Slides. Special glow in the dark merchandise and food & beverages will be available such as L.E.D. enhanced shave ice and cotton candy.

Honk Jr.
Heard Craig Hall, McKinney
Friday, Saturday & Sunday
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on adventure of self discovery all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.  Recommended for all ages.
