Before spring break wraps up this weekend, check out Dallas-Fort Worth's best offerings for family entertainment including an Irish-meets-Western parade, a cherry blossom festival, and a block party in the Dallas Arts District.

Night Vision
This Friday night the Nasher trades the tranquility of its sculpture garden for live music, scavenger hunts and a movie screening. Take the kids for fun at the sculpture center, the nearby Crow Collection and the DMA until midnight. Free.
The Buck Starts Here
Whose face is on that new orange $100 bill? Yours, if you want it. Today and tomorrow, take the kids to design their own dollar bills at the Western Currency Facility in Fort Worth, where half the nation's paper currency is made. Free.
Beyond the Pale
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Fort Worth's Stockyards Station spices up one of its twice-daily cattle drives for an Irish-themed parade. Cowtown goes green on Saturday with live music, pony rides, a petting zoo and staged gunfights. Free.
Following the Leader
Artisan Center Theater just completed its new 150-seat children's theater next door to its main stage in time for Disney's Peter Pan Jr. See the latest Artie's Playhouse production on Friday and Saturday in Hurst.
Fruit of the Bloom
Cherry blossom trees only bloom for about 10 days, so see them while the seeing's good during Hanami, a Dallas Arboretum celebration this Sunday afternoon with family activities and traditional Japanese music from the Japan-America Society.
