DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The U.S. Olympic Committee’s 2104 ‘Road to Sochi’ Tour will stop at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas on Feb. 1 and 2.

The stop in Dallas is the only Texas detour on the 13-stop tour, according to a press release.

The event will be held on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event features “interactive sport elements” that will allow the public to put their Olympic and Paralympic skills to test. This includes a hockey slap shot test, a street luge ramp and a cross-country roller ski course.
