Sounds of Spring at Dallas Blooms

Sounds of Spring is the theme for the 2020 festival. For this, there will be six topiaries with each one representing an instrument – a piano, harp, violin, saxophone, guitar and bass – as well as a couple of musicians. Allied to this will be a series of cookery classes, and wine and beer pairings, book signings, as well as live entertainment.

This will feature line dancing lessons from the SMU Mustang Mavericks, and a These Boots are Made for Walking contest where the competitor with the most interesting pair of boots will strut off with a prize of four tickets for a concert.
