With free rides and games, free live children’s entertainment, free face painting, and much more, the 9th Annual Festival at the Switchyard in Historic Downtown Carrollton offers something for every member of the family to enjoy!
The event is Nov. 3, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. With limited parking, the best way to get to all the fun, food and entertainment is on DART’s Green Line to Downtown Carrollton Station.
The children’s entertainment lineup will kick off at 12:30 p.m. inside the Plaza Arts Center with a performance by stunt juggler Matt Tardy.
Up next at 2:30 p.m., Landon Stark will put on a variety show for all ages that mixes his style of stand-up comedy with a fresh blend of unique wit, variety tricks, and astonishing magic.
Festival rides and games, including bungee trampolines, a zip line, a spin the apple ride, a giant fun slide, a kiddie high striker, a baseball toss, an all-star basketball free-throw game, a video game truck, and much more will line the streets.
