Family Day at 2015 Dallas International Film Festival

Family Day at Klyde Warren Park, April 11

Posted on by

DIFF 2015 Family DayWith a bit of carnival flair, Family Day includes activities, musicians and performances for filmgoers of all ages. The entirely FREE day of fun kicks off at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 at Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas and concludes with a free 30th-anniversary outdoor screening of Tim Burton’s classic comedy PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE.


At Family Day there is never a dull moment. Between scheduled sessions young film fans can show off their hula hooping skills, make paper planes, get their faces painted, jump in the bounce house, have Univision TV/Radio do a caricature portrait, and visit our balloon artist at the CBS 11 tent to request their favorite balloon animals—or stop by to love on some real-life furry friends from Operation Kindness. Kids can also take part in a variety of arts and crafts activities inspired by characters from PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE. Movie lovers of all ages can channel their inner Pee-Wee Herman on a biking adventure of their own. Bring your bike to join in on a 10-mile ride at 3 p.m. hosted by Slow Spokes DFW. Before the evening screening begins, we will also host a Pee-Wee Herman costume contest, so grab your red bowtie and show up dressed to impress!

Food trucks will be serving up tasty goodies throughout the afternoon and evening.

The 2015 DIFF Family Day is presented by CBS-11 and TXA-21, with support from Downtown Dallas, Inc.
