    My kids have been really looking forward to seeing Top O’ Texas ever since they saw the drawing at the State Fair. This would be a great opportunity to spend some quality family time together for a family that is constantly running around. We would also really like to see all of the other attractions that we haven’t had a chance to see yet since moving here.

  • Miriam Diaz says:

    Love the fair!!!!

  • Zee Smith says:

    Awesome! This is just the thing to make up for missing the fair last year.

  • kevin smith says:

    I’d like take a ride with my bride on the ferris wheel and remind her of our early years. The fireworks sound romantic .

  • Toya Smith says:

    I would love to bring my kids to enjoy the Top O’Texas and watch the fireworks. But if my family did win thinking of all that has happen in Boston and West Texas I would reach out and invite someone to come with me and my family thats sharing and giving and also thinking of someone else besides myself and giving back, that would be a winner to me.

  • kama says:

    This sounds like something my kids would love. Not only would they love the rides, but they would love to see the fireworks and taste all the food. This would be so awesome to win!!

  • Michele says:

    My 3 boys have never been to the TX State Fair and would absolutely L.O.V.E. to see fireworks from Top ‘O Texas. I would love to be a cool mom and we would enjoy the other attractions as well. We want to win!

  • Regina Turner says:

    There are numerous of good reasons why people want to visit the Fair Park. Of course the most popular reason would be taste of the various of foods and the rides. The one for me is to spend fun quality time with my family watching fireworks. We get so excited about fireworks because we’re oringial from Arkansas which we are use to being able to do our own fireworks but due to Texas laws we’re unable too. My family and I use to be able to attend the Fair Park together as a family every year but lately we haven’t been able to attend due to financial situations. If we won it would such an Awesome Blessing! Oh what a joy it would be…Thanks!

  • susan says:

    It sounds like SO much fun!!

  • Diana says:

    My family would love this free preview! We love spending time together and enjoying the beauties for Texas. My husband and I are from NY and have been living in Texas almost 6 years, our two children where born in Texas and we want them to get the full experience of this wonderful state. This would be the perfect opportunity for them to experience the wonderful aquarium , discovery museum , Texas fair food, beautiful fire works and attractions. What a great way to emerge in our adoptive state!

  • Daisy Villa says:

    I would LOVE to take my family to opening day! I’m sure my boys would enjoy all of the great activities there will be and will help them remain active! Can’t wait to try the food too! I think this was such an awesome idea to come up with and give us more to do during the summer months in the DFW! Thanks so much!

  • Deborah Berger says:

    Would love to take my kids to this. 🙂 They are in need of a break as well as something new to do. (Almost 5 years we’ve been in TX and haven’t been to Fair park yet.) It’d be a lot of fun. My kids love watching fireworks shows too. There is something magical about it, you almost feel childlike yourself watching them enjoy the show. 🙂

  • alice chase says:

    Our Family of 6 is always looking for fun things to do in the local Dallas area. With varying age ranges I know there will be something for each of us to enjoy. This looks like fantastic outing.

  • Mike says:

    We are a family of 5, but our youngest is 2 so this prize of 4 vouchers is perfect for us. We would all really enjoy it (especially the fireworks – the littlest has never seen them).

  • trina says:

    The food, the rides, the fireworks! Family fun at its best! Also cant wait to feed the stingrays – sounds awesome!!

  • Shelly Rollins says:

    This would be the perfect opportunity to have fun (with the rides and attractions) and learn (at all the cool museums that we’ve never been to), while speanding valuable family time together. Who know, I could even try to combat my fear of heights on the Top O Texas?! 🙂

  • barbara wagenhauser says:

    Just love to go and be outside and see the sights. Thanks for the chance.. Love NTK

  • Shahd Q says:

    My husband and I are a doctoral students who moved recently to Texas. We only have one child who does not get to have so much fun (being a child of two graduate students). In summer, we both dedicate our time to give her the maximum fun possible, in a way to make up for the whole year. I believe that taking her to the VIP Private Preview Party for Summer Adventures in Fair Park with a friend (since there are four tickets 🙂 ) will bring joy to her and us! I would really love to win this giveaway for my little princess <3

  • Kathie Hillman says:

    Who wouldn’t want to win?!! It will be a FUN way to make memories of my son’s 9th birthday!

  • Kirsten Wagner says:

    Would love some great family bonding time!

  • Meika Johnson says:

    This would be a great event for me to take my kids to. They have worked really hard this school year and have overcome lots of challenges. This is our first year in Dallas, so the kids had to start over in new schools and make new friends. This would be a great reward for them. I’d love to go and take pictures and try out the foods.

  • Kelly Adams says:

    Would love to take my family here!!!! We don’t really go to Dallas that much but this would be the Perfect thing to take my family too!!!!!!! :))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  • Angela Chaney says:

    Oh wow! I didn’t know this was opening. So excited! Hope I win to be able to take my family!

  • Steph Wakeem says:

    What an amazing gift this will be to any family! Naturally, I’d love to win it for my own family because we love exploring new places and seeing the latest that Dallas has to offer! This would put me over the top of the coolest boymom ever (in his eyes anyway)!

  • Krisinda Lingenfelter says:

    My older boys are 6 and 8…they would love to attend something like this! Being a family of 6, this is not something we will likely be able to attend/afford on our own. Looking forward to hearing about this new event, though.

  • Tracey Brandon says:

    This would be the perfect opportunity for my family to celebrate our new life together. I am retiring from the US Navy the end of this month after 20 years of service. Gone are the days of being deployed and not being able to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and special events. The future holds unlimited surprises and what a surprise this would be for my husband and kids!

  • Susan McKee says:

    Everything is Bigger and Better in Texas !!! Summer Adventures is going to have a Preview Party bigger than Texas !!! Hope to experience all the adventures on May 3, 2013 !!!

  • Judy says:

    This will be mine and my son’s first time to the fair. Looking forward to it.

  • Pam says:

    I’ve been living in Dallas for over 10 years. Two of my brothers have, too. All of us met and married our spouse here. We were born in Argentina and our dad is still there. He hasn’t met some of our children yet. this June, for the first time ever he will come visit us and we will all be together for a few weeks after years of being apart. what better way to celebrate Texas than showing him this awesome place??? Thanks!

  • Nady says:

    I think my kiddos deserve a family night with all of us. My husband and i split up but still try to do things as a family so the kids feel like everything is still the same and nothing has changed. I know they would love to spend time at the summer adventures!

  • Terri A says:

    We would go when I was a kid to the summer events at Fair Park. I would love to take my boys so they could have the same experience I did.
