Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Are you ready to delight your senses? Grab something to sit on, a few friends and come soak in the downtown city skyline at night. This free musical event that has been conceived, and uniquely titled, Decks In The Park "Beats I Park I Life" will bring an explosion of music sounds to your ear drums each month at the newly opened Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. Brainchild of veteran Dallas DJ/Producer, Jeff Mitchell, the mission is to leave a long lasting musical legacy in Dallas that connects and exposes people to new sights and sounds while enjoying the use of public spaces.
Decks In The Park had its inaugural event in June 2013 with an estimated 1,200 attendees. At the time it was the second largest event in Klyde Warren Park’s short history, next to the grand opening of the park. The second round of Decks In The Park in July 2013 drew over 2,500 locals, their families and a few hundred furry friends. Also, some of the best food trucks in Dallas line the park during the event, but people are still encouraged to bring food and drinks for the family.
On August 29th, September 26th, and October 31st, 2013 from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. CDT Decks In The Park will be held at Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas: 2012 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Dallas, TX 75201. The event is open to the public and is a free, no-cost event. For more information, visit: http://www.decksinthepark.com.
"Being involved in the Dallas music scene for almost 20 years I have seen Dallas's musical tastes evolve as the city has grown," said Jeff Mitchell, creator of Decks in the Park. "I have always known Dallas was a very musically inclined city and that an event like Decks In The Park would be very well received, I just couldn't find the right venue. I wanted to bring that great music festival vibe into downtown Dallas and now with Klyde Warren Park being opened I saw it as the perfect space. From the architectural design, to the energy it brings to the city and the amazing sights of the downtown skyline at night, I knew that this was the perfect space for the event."
"When Jeff came to us with the idea for Decks In The Park, we were all ears," stated Tara Green, President of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation. "Klyde Warren Park was built to help bring energy, excitement and people to downtown, Uptown and the Arts District. The success of Decks In The Park has helped this vision come to fruition. We are excited to see how this event will continue to enhance visitors’ experiences in Klyde Warren Park."
