If you told me I’d see a devil dog in my lifetime I wouldn’t have believed you – until last night. Dallas didn’t hold back as droves of costumed guests made Decks in the Park their Thursday night outing. Accompanied by the beacon of a rainbow, Decks goers were treated to the most electric event of the season! Tiny tots triumphantly dotted the stage until eventually it was a swarm of costumed madness. I dare someone to name one event, other than the internationally acclaimed Texas State Fair, that brings literally every demographic together -- shoulder to shoulder in euphoric harmonious musical bliss.
Decks in the Park started as a simple idea to bring music to the people of Dallas, and has truly taken on a life and personality of its own. Decks in the Park, properly, redefines what it means to be part of a community. What it feels like to be included in something bigger than yourself. Decks gives us a glimpse, if only for a night, into what a world in perfect harmony could look like. Take a look for yourself at one truly enchanted experience.
