If Live DJ’s aren’t energizing enough for you, catch the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and Mayor Mike Rawlings in person too! Four hours isn’t nearly enough time to celebrate the wonders of this town, but it will have to do for the last Hump Day of the month.

Dallas’ BIG Celebration will run from 4:00pm – 8:00pm on March 27th right in Victory Park at the AT&T Plaza. Why wait until the weekend?

Get over that hump and cruise into Easter Weekend with a Wednesday night festival filled with upbeat music, Vocal Trash performance, putting greens, bounce houses, free giveaways and more cool treats for the entire family! There will be food and drinks available as well! You also won’t want to miss out on “Dallas Swag” so make a night of it with your fellow North Texans and celebrate the 9th most populous city in the U.S. the only way you know how, with a “fun factor’ the size of BIG TEX.
