Enjoy a Starry Night at an Outside Summer Concert

A few weeks ago, my friend Jen mentioned that we needed a girl’s night out. “Let’s go have tapas, laugh and drink wine!” That’s exactly what we did… and it was fabulous! We said, “Bonjour summer” with a relaxing night of tapas and ballet under the stars.

This got me thinking, “why don't we do this more often?” As long as you bring along bug spray, being outside on a summers evening is a pleasure.

Summer is in full swing; on a perfect evening under a starry night there are so many opportunities to dine al fresco while watching an outside performance. The song of the cicadas', beckons us to get outside and enjoy summer with friends and family.

Bring your grandmother’s cozy quilt, a picnic basket full of fresh summer foods, and a bottle of rosé …you’ll be all set to make musical memories and get into the spirit of summer. Stepping outside a formal theatre to see a ballet performance in the open air was refreshing. Jen and I enjoyed Ballet Concerto in Fort Worth’s beautiful Trinity Park Pavilion.

After such a lovely evening, I am inspired to enjoy more outdoor summer concerts. Here in Texas, it is very likely that we will reach the triple digits during the day so and evening event sounds like the best plan.
Here are some summer ideas for those who live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. If you’re not, be sure to look up were you can soak up summer’s beautiful evenings in your neck of the woods.
