This is Passport to Texas
If you live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, or need a reason for a road trip, our State park guide Bryan Frazier recommends a day at Cedar Hill State Park.
That park is really a neat place. It sits on Joe Pool reservoir, and it borders on Dallas and Tarrant county; you’re across the lake from the city of Grand Prairie.
You can actually see the new Dallas Cowboys football stadium from inside Cedar Hill SP.
And not only do we have lots of improvements, we have full hook-up loops and camping there with sewer connections. But we’re also going to do the 20th Anniversary and Fall Harvest Heritage Festival coming up October 22.
There’s going to be food and drink vendors, a musician, lots of outdoor activities from climbing to mountain biking to kayaking and fishing. There will be tours of Penn Farm, which is a historic site within the park there. And that’s going to start at 11 AM and go to 6 PM on Saturday, October 22. And adult entrance fees will be lowered to three dollars and children ages 12 and under are always free at state parks.
So, check out the harvest heritage festival and 20th Anniversary celebration coming up in October—put it on your calendar.
That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet…building dependable, reliable trucks for more than 90 years.
