Closing Night Celebration
Tuesday, August 14
The State Fair of Texas is the nation’s largest and was recently named a “Top 10 Classic American Experience” by CNN.com, and Fair Park is home to the world’s largest collection of 1930’s Art Deco exposition buildings.
Encounter aspects of the city with which you’re familiar and also those yet to be realized. As the historic Cotton Bowl stadium and State Fair of Texas re-creation serve as the exterior backdrop, each of Dallas’ 13 entertainment districts will be reconstructed inside Fair Park’s Centennial Hall. Experience the flavors of Deep Ellum, Victory Park, Uptown and more through music, food and entertainment, including musical performances by KC & The Sunshine Band, Vanilla Ice, and Professor D.
The evening will conclude at the Esplanade Fountains, designed by the same company who created the Bellagio’s fountains in Las Vegas. Ernie Ernstrom of artchitecture.com will bring video to life on its 272 water jets that spray 100 feet in the air set to music. Finally, a stunning fireworks show will certainly elicit a lasting double take.
Dress casually and cool.
