The fun gets BIGGER this week with oversized classic games to play and a special spring exhibit
Dallas Heritage Village hosts Spring Fling: Jumbo Fun! Tuesday, March 14 thru Friday, March 17, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., at 1515 S. Harwood, to encourage kids to get up and get out and enjoy the great outdoors with some oversized classic games and old fashioned fun.
“We wanted to do something different this year with some old classics to encourage families to enjoy the great outdoors, spend some memorable time together and just have fun,” said Melissa Prycer, president and executive director, Dallas Heritage Village. “Kids will love bowling with a ball as big as they are and building a train of dominoes as big as their feet and many more activities! These fun activities also a provide a wonderful incentive to put down the video games and enjoy some old fashioned fun in the great outdoors as children did many years ago.”
Activities include oversized bowling on the lawn, checkers, dominos, hoops and graces, and scrabble. The weeklong event will also feature a special spring exhibit titled “Log Cabins: Quilts, Houses and Toys.” Attendees can build a log cabin and walk right in, stretch their creativity with traditional Lincoln Logs, and try combining fabrics on quilt puzzles.
“Two quilts in log cabin designs will also be on display,” added Prycer. “There will be a rough wool version that would look right at home in a cozy mountain cabin and a sophisticated silk quilt on display for the first time after being restored with a generous grant from the Quilter's Guild of Dallas.”
Children will also learn how quilts and cabins kept pioneers warm on the frontier. This special exhibit will remain open until April 2. Guests may also tour the Village throughout the week and learn about its history. Young shopkeepers, shoppers, and postal workers can have fun role playing at The Blum Brothers store. And everyone enjoys stopping by to see Mammoth Jack Donkeys Nip and Tuck and their new friends Willie and Waylon, who are now quite settled in their new home.
“March is an extremely busy time at Dallas Heritage Village, and we anticipate seeing a lot of families during the annual fun Spring Fling week,” added Prycer. “Make some memories with your family this week!”
