There’s a lot going on this weekend – for starters, the always-free Festival at the Switchyard takes over Downtown Carrollton on Saturday with rides and game, a beer garden, food vendors and other festival-y stuff – including lots of music. Headliners Collective Soul are joined by more than a half-dozen other acts. Parking’s limited, so taking the Green Line to Downtown Carrollton Station is by far the best way to get there.

There are lots of other DARTable options, ranging from concerts to tacos. Jump in to find out more.
