Rider Insider: Find things to do this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth

It’s the final weekend for the 2014 State Fair of Texas! Learn everything about riding DART to the event over here. Also available to do this weekend…

• Ride the DART Rail Red Line or Orange Line to Galatyn Park Station this weekend to see the internationally acclaimed Split Knuckle Theatre Company in a funny, physical and moving exploration of how the human spirit can conquer any obstacle with wit, humor, invention… and Endurance! Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth. Ninety-five years later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey, struggling to justify his recent promotion and save his employees’ jobs, relives Shackleton’s story. Endurance brings every moment of the story into perfect focus in an elegant, humorous and moving show. Performances are at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Dr. in Richardson.

• Ride the DART Rail Green Line to Farmers Branch Station for the Bloomin’ Bluegrass Festival. This free festival features top names in the world of bluegrass, as well as a chili cook-off, an arts & crafts marketplace, kids’ activities and plenty of jamming. Festival hours are Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Farmers Branch Historical Park, 2540 Farmers Branch Lane. Information: bloominbluegrass.com.
