Fun Event: After Dark in the ParkOct. 8-10 is the weekend for After Dark in the Park, a fall festival at River Legacy Park in Arlington. It highlights the educational programs of River Legacy Living Science Center, but there’s plenty of fun stuff to do. Scheduled events include karaoke, storytelling under the stars, a pumpkin patch, and even hayride shuttles from the parking lot to the event entrance.

The event takes place from 5-9 p.m. each night. Admission is $7 per person, with children 2 and under free. Families can also purchase a Family Fun Pack through Oct. 6 at the Living Science Center-  it includes 4 admission tickets and 40 concession/activity coupons for $40.

The site says that “in case of event cancellation, consider all advance-ticket purchases a donation to the River Legacy Living Science Center.” If you’re not OK with that, then buy at the gate.

River Legacy Park is at 703 NW Green Oaks Blvd at Cooper Street in Arlington.
