Summer Fun Thursday At Willow Bend Mall

Thanks Savvy Source!

For the past four years in the middle of July, when summer hits its hardest and the Texas sun makes even the swimming pool unbearably steamy, The Shops at Willow Bend has hosted its annual Week of Summer Fun.

This year, The Shops at Willow Bend will host Summer Fun Thursdays. Each Thursday during the month of July The Shops at Willow Bend will invite children and parents/caregivers inside the cool, out-of-the-sun environment at the center to participate in five free activities. From concerts to cooking activities for the junior chefs, Summer Fun Thursdays is a mid-summer dream of fun.

Summer Fun activities are designed to capture the imagination of children 14 and younger. Join us in bringing this fun event to families in north Dallas.

July 1 – The David Chicken Live Show Spectacular
A heart-pounding, floor-stomping, jump-out-of-your-seat event that's fun and healthy for the whole family! This talented singer-songwriter leads the audience through a high-energy, interactive performance filled with creative movement, motivational messages, and general hilarity. Named "Best of Big D" by D Magazine, David invites members of the audience on stage to sing, play musical instruments and be a star! For a spectacular event that will have your whole audience singing and laughing, put on your dancing shoes and learn how to SCAKLE!

July 8* – Make Your Own Pizza at California Pizza Kitchen*
The chefs at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) invite children to create their own personal pies with sauce, pepperoni and cheese. As well, participants will be invited to decorate a CPK box that The Shops at Willow Bend will turn into an art exhibition for guests to the shopping center. On a health note: Medical Center of Plano will demonstrate the correct (and fun) way to wash hands before cooking.

July 15 – Vocal Trash
A high-octane stage group that provides an afternoon of music, dance and comedy – plus audience participation – just for kids. Like a variety show with Broadway flair, Vocal Trash will present Street Show, an electrifying show for children and adults that features acapella harmonies and industrial “Stomp” style drumming.

July 22 – Twisting Pretzels with Auntie Anne's Pretzels*
Children are invited to come behind the counter at Auntie Anne’s and learn to twist and shape their very own pretzel that then can be enjoyed hot and fresh from the oven.

July 29 – Eddie Coker Performance
Dallas’s own children’s singer/songwriter will delight all comers with his unique singing performance. His songs and performances feature fanciful and quirky characters and provide educational and spiritual support, including character building, fostering kindness and empathy, physical fitness and self value.

*July 8, 2010 the activity will be located in Macy’s Court.

**To be certain that each child has the opportunity to participate on July 8, 2010 and July 22, 2010, wrist bands will be distributed beginning at 1:00 pm with a designated time for the activity.
