On October 19, 2013 the City of Irving revived a classic event along the Mandalay Canal in Las Colinas, Canal Fest. Over 8,000 people took part in the festivities! The Bud Light Main Stage showcased music by BlacktopGYPSY, Emerald City Band and Steel Magnolia throughout the day. Appearances by the Dallas Mavericks Dancers, WFAA, ESPN Dallas and KISS FM offered the chance to meet local celebrities and win tickets to Dallas-area events. A free Fun Zone included inflatable rides, trampolines, a mechanical bull and 100' long zip line, while face painting, caricatures and henna tattoos were offered free of charge along the canal.
Attendees were treated to cultural performances such as belly dance, martial arts, ballet folklorico, hula and African dance. An indoor art exhibit featured the works of local artists and photographers. Pedal boat rentals and gondola rides were a highlight for many of the attendees. With a wide variety of activities, sights and sounds, Canal Fest offered something for everyone to enjoy.
