Earlier this month, we were lucky enough to be asked to participate in the Frisco StrEATS festival in the Frisco Rail District. We joined forces with our friends at Countdown 2 Escape to create a mini scavenger hunt that was perfect for the many, many families on site.
What a great time we had! This being North Texas, the day started with everyone worried about the weather. And rightly so! It had stormed all night and by breakfast time, it showed no sign of stopping. The event was scheduled to start at noon, and even at eleven the rain was still coming down. But then something happened, as it often does in our part of the world. It just stopped. As the old song says, out came the sun and dried up all the rain. We ended up with a lovely day! In the end, I think the rainy morning helped convince more people to get out of the house for the afternoon, sending lots of folks to the festival.
The festival was full of vendors, providing everything from funny shirts to fried dough, from CBD oil to olive oil. But the highlight for us, of course, was our booth. We shared our space with Countdown 2 Escape, and got to play several games of bingo with the ecstatic crowd.
Meanwhile, dozens of kids stopped by to try the mini hunt -- a page of clever clues directing them through the festival to discover a hidden code. Once they'd collected the answers and solve the puzzle, the lucky kids could proceed to a booth to claim their prize, courtesy of our sponsor Chris Robertson of Farmer's Insurance .
It was a real joy to watch kids scramble through the festival, putting their brains to the test. And it was just as fun to see them once they'd collected their prizes, bouncing rubber spiders and flapping fairy wings.
We had a blast at the festival and can't wait to return next year!
