Longhorn Ballroom Outdoor Park Opening Weekend
Texas’ most historic showplace will open its backyard to Dallas dwellers for a weekend full of fun-filled activities. Offering a scenic Trinity River view away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Dallas, the new Longhorn Park is a taste of what’s to come at the property. With plans to open a two-and-a-half-acre outdoor Container Park in the future, Longhorn Ballroom owner Jay LaFrance is giving patrons a reason to visit the historic space and spend time in nature this spring.
Longhorn Park will offer 20 minute horseback rides from the Longhorn backyard across the Trinity River levy, offering a horseback view of the river and downtown Dallas skyline. Its new leashless dog park will serve as a place for furry friends to run wild as patrons enjoy brews and BBQ outdoors. With each plate or sandwich purchase, patrons can enjoy a free seasonal Texas Ale Project beer. Texas Ale Project will also offer $5 beer specials for anyone in the Park during opening weekend. There will also be Texas-style food offerings, BBQ plates and sandwiches from rotating local vendors, including One90 Smoked Meats, Pecan Lodge Catering, Tillman’s Road House, and more.
Grand opening weekend at the Park will also feature local live music on Saturday from two Fort Worth-based rock bands, Electrik Ants and Children of Indigo, and Ansley and BJ Stricker on Sunday.
