Vogel Alcove’s annual event, Day 1 DFW, is returning for its sixth year, this year presented by Main Event. The fun, family fair has been reimagined to offer families three safe ways to play on New Year’s Day. Each option is designed to fit the health and safety concerns for varying comfort levels of Dallas-Fort Worth families.

The three ways to participate include:

  • In-person event: Purchase all-access wristbands for one of three Main Event sites (Frisco, Grapevine, and Grand Prairie). The $15 all-access wristband affords wearers access to unlimited play of bowling, billiards, laser tag, gravity ropes, and golf. Participants will be issued bowling shoes and a $10 Fun Card for use around the facility. Each site will offer face painting for $5 and photo booths for pictures of the family. Anyone who comes early from 9 am-12 pm will receive free access to the VR “Holigate” game at all three locations. 
  • Virtual event: This $10 experience will feature live and pre-recorded performances from magician Grant Price, animals with Wildlife on the Move, and the Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion. There will also be a virtual trivia game, a hula dancing lesson, dancing, a cooking class, a science show, and virtual bingo. It also include a New Year’s Resolution Scavenger Hunt and Cardboard Challenge, which can be done prior to the day of the event. The fireworks show will also be livestreamed during the experience.
  • Closing drive-in fireworks show: The events will be wrapped up at 7 pm with a free drive-in fireworks show sponsored by Oncor and FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium in Frisco. The parking lot will open at 6 pm before the show. Snacks will be available for purchase from vehicles. Parking will be available on a first come, first parked basis.

All proceeds from Day 1 DFW benefit Vogel Alcove, a nonprofit serving homeless children and their families.
