The opening night reception for the 2010 PCMA annual convention in Dallas had the theme The Trails of Texas. The organizers aimed to give attendees a taste of north Texas’ many communities, from sophisticated fashion mecca Dallas to the Stockyards of Fort Worth. There were Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, rides from the Texas State Fair and food reflecting those different aspects, such as tailgate hamburgers and caramel apples. Guests could ride a mechanical bull, get a Macy’s makeover or play carnival games. It was a fun way to introduce people to the variety of amenities the Dallas-Fort Worth communities such as Plano, Irving, Addison, Grapevine and others have to offer. Take a look for yourself:
