Seeing the new year in is always an exciting experience, so why not make the most of it and continue your celebrations right through New Year’s Day? There are plenty of ways to do this, especially if you live in a region like North Texas. But what if you have young children? Don’t worry! You and your family can kick off the start of a brand new year with a visit to Dallas for Day 1 Dallas, the city’s annual family New Year’s celebration.
Where is Day 1 Dallas?
Located at Fair Park, on Robert B. Cullum Boulevard, the event consists of a variety of fun family activities, including air graffiti, claymation demonstrations, and circus skills workshops. There is also a huge range of food to try and hands-on experiences for your children to learn about cooking traditions from around the world.
There’s something for everyone!
If your children are feeling a little shy or you’d like to keep the activities low-key, check out the crafters’ haven, and practice some crochet, knitting, and quilting. Perhaps you would prefer the gamers’ den, where there are over 1,000 board games to try! There are even massage workshops on offer, so you can take some time out to relax and pick up some handy massage tips to boot. In addition to all of this, Day 1 Dallas offers a gaming arcade; extreme vehicle experiences; and popular performers such as Collins Key, Debby Ryan, and Cody Lovas. The day is rounded off by a fantastic fireworks display, sure to dazzle family members both young and old.
Enjoy free admission for children.
Admission costs $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 4 and over. However, between 10 AM and noon, children can enter for free, as long as they are with a paying adult. There is also free admission at all times for children under four, provided they are accompanied by an adult. Tickets for the day, as well as performance tickets, can be purchased online. Performance tickets include free entry into the Family Fair, so you can really make a day of it! Finding something for everyone to enjoy can be hard at any time of year, and New Year’s is no exception. Thankfully, Day 1 Dallas has something for everyone! Whether you want to make a day of it or simply head out for a couple of hours with your loved ones, there is sure to be something that catches your eye. Keep this great celebration in mind, and give yourself and your family a New Year’s Day to cherish for the rest of the year.
