The overcast skies and blustery wind did not stop more than 5100 families and friends from celebrating the first day of 2020 together at Day 1 Dallas. In our fifth year, the event, traditionally held in Dallas, was relocated to Frisco’s Dr Pepper Ballpark and Embassy Suites Convention Center. Families celebrated New Year’s Day together amidst a multitude of family-fun activities and shows.
We had a spectacular fireworks show set to children’s music, interactive children’s activities, crafts and games, live bands and performances.
After a full afternoon of great times, everyone gathered for the fireworks show at Dr Pepper Ballpark. Welcomed by Lifestyle Frisco’s Kelly Walker, Karen Hughes, our President and CEO, welcomed everyone and thanked the crowd for joining in the fun. She recognized Geoff Bailey, Oncor and Vogel Alcove Board Member; John Wander, Vogel Alcove Board Chair and Partner with Vinson & Elkins; Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney and Scott Burchett, Chief Operating Officer, Frisco RoughRiders, and our staff.
