Your DDD Guide: Can't-Miss October Design District Events

It's finally October! The weather's cooling down (by Texas standards), there are decorative gourds as far as the eye can see, and you’ve still got a month before the holiday festivities begin and family and friends start pouring into town.

So before all that craziness ensues, head down to check out some of these can’t-miss October events at the Dallas Design District.
