Brave Combo headline Prairie Fest this Saturday.

All the good events this week are taking place outdoors, so let’s celebrate the mild weather and run down what’s happening. The festivities start on Thursday with the Granbury Wine Walk, because why should Grapevine have the outdoor wine events all to itself? The three-day event features live music and fine food as well, and the proceeds benefit various local charities.

Also contributing to a good cause is the Literacy Rally at Arlington Heights High School, with a petting zoo, obstacle course, and other activities intended to promote reading.

This is air-show weather, so the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base will host the Air Power Expo this weekend, with performances by the famous Blue Angels and other aerial daredevils. If you’re more interested in ground transportation, #FamilyCarAdvice at Stockyards Station will give you free tips on buying a car. Fans of spring wildflowers won’t want to miss Prairie Fest, the solar-powered outdoor festival at Tandy Hills Natural Area, which has live music by Brave Combo and Pablo & The Hemphill 7.

We normally associate chili with fall, but there’s no bad time to eat the stuff, and Tongues of Fire offers up a big cook-off in Hurst. Finally, the weekend closes with Open Streets, which will once again close down West Magnolia Avenue to automobile traffic in favor of vendors and arts and crafts. Other than allergies, there’s no excuse for staying indoors this weekend.
