There is a huge list of happenings around town this week and we’ve done our best to pare it down to what we think are the top ten things y'all should be doin'. The big event this weekend is the Redbud Festival Saturday at the Civic Center. Next week, we’re hosting The Candidates Debate at Dan’s Silverleaf on Monday at 7PM. If you want to see what the prospective candidates' future visions for the city are, then this is a must-attend event. Don’t forget to register to vote by Friday, April 11th and make democracy count. While you’re at it, snap away on your phones and hashtag #WDDI on Instagram to be featured in our Monday’s post, What We Did.

Denton Redbud Festival | Civic Center | 10AM - 4PM
One of our favorite local non-profits, Keep Denton Beautiful, is hosting one of our favorite smaller festivals in town this Saturday. Denton’s official Arbor Day event is a community festival, home and garden show with tree and plant sales, home improvement items and a ton more. We’re hoping for some beautiful weather for this one. If you're wondering what else the Redbud Festival has to offer, read below.
TRASHion Fashion Runway Show | Civic Center | 12PM
Part of the Redbud fest but cool enough to get it’s own plug, this is an award-winning fashion show that features garments made out of recycled trash and other materials and is another reason we love Keep Denton Beautiful.
Brutal Juice / Baboon / Curvette | Rubbergloves | 9PM | $12
Black Taffy (TWDY) / Hat Hair / Savage + The Big Beat / Danny Diamonds | Dan’s Silverleaf | 8PM | $7

The Candidates Debate | Dan’s Silverleaf | 7PM
We're bringing the candidates for the May 10th municipal election and the issues right to Dan’s. This should be a good one. If you want to heckle Glen about anything (or root for him, I guess) this is your chance.
Poetry Out Loud - April Showers Bring Rivers of Ineffable Sadness | Banter | 8PM
This seems artsy, right?
