Mayor Eric Johnson is excited to host the 24th annual Mayor's Back to School Fair. The popular annual event provides Dallas students and families with essential back-to-school supplies. The Fair is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas, Dallas ISD, nonprofits, corporations, and community volunteers and serves economically disadvantaged students and their families who live in the City of Dallas and/or attend a Dallas ISD school in grades Pre-K to 12. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has challenged families across the city, and many children will soon begin classes again either virtually or in person. As with many events over the past several months, this year's Back to School Fair will look much different and will be much more condensed than in the past.

For registered parents and students receiving school supply packs, there will be a limited walk-up only fair for those families that use public transportation on Thursday, August 20 and a drive-thru only fair on Friday, August 21. Please note, pedestrians or walk-ups at the drive-thru fair on Friday, August 21 will not be accommodated, Friday's fair is strictly vehicles only. Upon arrival to the drive-thru fair, families must remain in their vehicles and volunteers will load the school supplies in the trunk or bed of the vehicle.

As in the past, families will need to meet certain income requirements and must be Dallas residents. All guests are required to pre-register by Monday, August 17. Information: .

Fort Worth:

The Herd Twice Daily, 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Texas Longhorn and the American cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown." And they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. The world's only twice-daily cattle drive happens at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily in the Stockyards National Historic District, 130 E. Exchange Ave. in Fort Worth. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail!
