This weekend: Story time with Dad, World Refugee Day, macaron making and more

White Rock Local Market

The White Rock Market opens at 8 a.m. Saturday. Don’t miss out on fresh fruits and vegetables, specialty items, arts and crafts, showcasing local vendors from Lake Highlands and greater Dallas. The market is held in the lot of Lake Pointe Church, 9150 Garland Road.

Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Northwest Community Center, 5750 Pineland, celebrate World Refugee Day, a global event to recognize and celebrate the cultures, stories and experiences of refugees. This family-friendly day in Vickery Meadow is filled with guest speakers, performances, activities for kids, free family portraits and light refreshments. For children: bounce houses, games, an art project, face-painting and more. “The celebration is especially intended for refugee families,” note organizers, “but members of the public are warmly welcome to attend.”

Learn French Macaron-making from the pros at Haute Sweets Patisserie. Saturday at 1 p.m., they teach an intimate class; students work in pairs. This isn’t rocket science or driving, so bring along a bottle or two of your preferred beverage. The macarons you make, you eat or take home. The cost of the class is $75 per person or $125 for a couple. Children ages 6-15 welcome if accompanied by a paid adult. Contact the shop today to reserve a spot (and fast, because they will fill up).

Sunday is Father’s Day. Dad’s and kids who want to hang out together should head over to Barnes & Noble, 770 W. Northwest Highway, for
Dad’s Day story time with Marjorie Blain Parker’s “When Dads Don’t Grow Up,” which highlights the zany antics of four fathers and their children. The story starts at 11 a.m., and families — yeah, moms invited too — can stick around for activities afterward.
