The Dallas Arboretum announces the return of August Dollar Days during the dog days of summer. For the entire month of August, the garden offers $3 general garden admission and $3 admission to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden. Weekends feature local acts playing piano under the shade at Jeanne’s Pavilion and plenty of special events, such as the Pepper Palooza from Aug. 11-20 with a spicy vendor market Aug. 12-13. Now through Aug. 6, the Quilters Guild of Dallas Exhibit showcases handmade quilts in the DeGolyer House. These quilts highlight rich histories and stories that complement the Great Contributors’ statues. Advanced timed tickets are required for entry. Get them by visiting — Terry Lendecker
