Can’t decide where to take your kids for Spring Break? We suggest heading to the Spring Break Round Up event in Waco, Texas. The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is hosting their annual festival this Saturday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission to the event is $7 for adults and $3 for children, and includes general museum admission.

The event will feature fun and educational activities for the whole family. Activities from previous years included crafts like making bookmarks, bandanas, Ranger badges, and Medals of Valor; fingerpainting; and coloring contests. If you choose to participate in the Ranger Scavenger Hunt, Old West Target Game, or Wild West Shooting Practice, be sure to bring along your child’s mouth guard to avoid accidental facial injuries. You can also dress up in your best western gear and show off your smile for your family photos.

This year’s Spring Break Round Up event will also feature a chuck wagon cooking demonstration. After attending the exhibition, you can practice your own Dutch oven cooking at home, but keep in mind that even foods cooked over wood coals can damage your smile.

With the nicer weather, you’ll probably want to spend more time outside. If you want to participate in other outdoor activities in Waco, these events are sure to make you and your family smile.

Spring break is also a great time to schedule your dentist appointment with Dr. Locke. You’ll probably be doing a little spring cleaning around the house, so why not include your spring dental cleaning? Additionally, if you head over to the Dr. Pepper Museum after the Round Up event, Dr. Locke can protect your smile against the staining, erosion, and other damaging effects of soda. Our office will be closed for Spring break from March 12 to March 20, but we encourage you to call our office before or after that week.

To keep your smile healthy during Spring Break, contact Dr. Locke at our dentist office in Waco, Texas, at (254) 776-4888 to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from Waco, Woodway, McGregor, Hewitt, and surrounding communities.
