Tour Fair Park
The Friends of Fair Park have launched a social media contest to inspire locals and tourists alike to explore Fair Park by capturing photos at locations on the Fair Park Campus and share over social media for the opportunity to win great prizes.
The contest continues the Mayor of Dallas' efforts to light up Fair Park and bring visitors to appreciate Fair Park at all hours of the day.
More than sixty cellphone tour stops have been located throughout the Fair Park campus. Tourists and locals alike are invited to snap a photo of themselves (commonly known as a selfie) with a Fair Park Tour sign and then share photos via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media channels using the hashtag #FairParkTour.
Fans can submit one photo per location for the weekly contest for multiple chances to win exciting Fair Park experiences and the grand prize. Locals can visit fairpark.org to discover a map of the tour stops, prize packages and complete contest rules.
One winner will be randomly selected each Monday from all "Cellfie" Contest photo submissions to win prize packages for sports, arts and culture, shopping or dining experiences available at or near Fair Park.
A sampling of prizes include tickets to concerts by Lionel Ritchie, Tim McGraw, KXT Summercut, and Chicago and REO Speedwagon at Gexa Pavillion. Prizes will also include passes to the Aquarium, and the Texas Discovery Gardens. Books about Fair Park and an American flag will also be awarded.
The Fair Park Cell Phone Tour "Cellfie" Contest ends Aug. 11, 2014.
"Because of the Fair Park Cell Phone Tour, millions of visitors every year will be able to learn about what they are seeing and will be able to do it for free,” said Craig Holcomb, President of Friends of Fair Park." They will learn about the park’s history, art, architecture, and some of the unusual happenings that have occurred in the last hundred years.”
A special thanks to our sponsors, AT&T, WFAA and Dallas Park and Recreation for making this tour possible.
