Fair Park Looking to Host Events All Year Long
Posted May 31st, 2012 | by The Update
The State Fair is Fair Park’s biggest draw. It attracts 3,000,000 people every year. The next biggest draw is Earth Day Dallas which brings in about 75,000 visitors. The North Texas Irish Festival draws about 73,000.
Fair Park executives say the latter two are great festivals, but they want to go after larger events that last three, even four days long.
Huerta says plans are in the works for the new “Summer Adventure.” The three-month long event will feature amusement rides, cooling pools, food vendors, and a 500-foot observation tower called the Top Of Texas. Summer Adventure kicks off in May of 2013 and will remain open through August.
Other events set for Fair Park include, “Holiday Lights” which is scheduled to open in December, 2014. The “Cotton Bowl Spectacular” laser light show will open in June of 2015.
