The heart of downtown Fort Worth is debuting its Â makeover with the grand opening celebration of the new Sundance Square Plaza.
The plaza opened Friday morning, and events are scheduled throughout the weekend. In addition to live music, there will be balloon artists, jugglers, magicians, art displays, sketch artists, caricaturists, living statues, trick ropers, face painters, and more.
The $110 overhaul and expansion of the one-acre Sundance Square includes two new office buildings, restaurants, and retail.
The squareâ€™s decorative features include four 32-foot umbrellas that contain color-changing LED lights, a wave pool, a jetted fountain, and a permanent stage for bands and movies.
Sundance Square has already scored major events in the coming year, including the inaugural Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival, and it will serve as the headquarters for ESPNâ€™s broadcast coverage of the NCAA Menâ€™s Final Four this spring.
