What’s Happening in Dallas: January 5-7

Plenty of sports action in town this weekend to keep people busy.

With the New Year behind us, things are rather quiet around Dallas with everybody in recovery mode for the weekend.

Of course, the Mavericks and the Stars will be in town, so you can stack your weekend with Dallas sporting events.

The Mavericks will take on the Chicago Bulls Friday evening at the American Airlines Center.

Tip-off is at 7:30 pm, and tickets start at $28 if you’re interested in attending.

The Stars will go on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 pm to take on the Edmonton Oilers.

You can grab tickets for this event for as low as $20.

If you’re still craving basketball on Sunday, the Mavericks will be back to battle the New York Knicks.

Game time is at 6:00 pm, and tickets are still available for as low as $12.

There’s still time to catch a few of the holiday festivities that you may have missed.

The Fair Park Holiday Wonder will remain open until January 7th, with tickets available at $12 for children and $20 for adults.

The Magical Winter Lights at Lone Star Park will continue to run through January 7th as well.
