Last Sunday the Denton Holiday Lighting Festival Board and a crowd of supporters headed to Dan's to celebrate Christmas In July. The event was to kick off their fundraiser for the 25th Anniversary CD. It was a successful night, with some of our town's finest musicians getting on stage to support this non-profit entity that brings us one of the greatest events this town has to offer. Even the weather cooperated as it was rainy and in the 70's; a typical Christmas Day in Denton. "Well I guess summer's over!" was the joke of the night but the reality is the school year is right around the corner. I'll spare you the date, but time is running out to spend your days at the beach, make those Community Market trips and take the day to ride the A-train to the free DMA. Looking for something to do still? This week we've got Denton's first drunken Spelling Bee, beer tastings and more. Also, be on the look out for a major announcement this week. We're excited and you should be too.
