DARTable events all over the place this week: Performances of all sorts, two art fairs, and a pair of events with an Italian theme. And of course, the State Fair of Texas is getting into full swing. This weekend is the annual Red River Rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners at the Cotton Bowl. With more than 100,000 expected people traveling to attend the game, DART makes getting there easy and safe.
