Main Street Garden Opening Brief Recap – Phew!

I almost broke out in dance when the sod FINALLY showed up..

Over 500 folks came out to Friday’s festivities to open Main Street Garden (MSG as we fondly call it around our offices) and witness the birth of the first true lifestyle park in Downtown Dallas.  Despite the last minuteness, it came together as well as it could considering at 7:30am the great lawn had yet to be sodded and the fountain was dry!


I wanted to post a quick video of the “wow” part, the laser “ribbon” cutting and pyro explosion(!).  I will have more photos up within the next 24-36 hours.  But have included a few of the “set up” (thanks Jim). Also, below are some of the press the event received.

Everyone pitched in to help set up the tables and linens. Cosntruction workers putting on linens = awesome!
