Farmers Branch Date Night in the Park is a periodic event in Farmers Branch Historical Park, a charmingly preserved frontier village where you can't help but slow down and unwind. On June 1, enjoy a special Family Date Night with a KidZone, shopping, concessions, live music and a family-friendly movie screening.
