Pulling Together


It’s an age-old question: Who’s better… Dallas or Fort Worth? Are you ready to prove it? From barbecue to art museums, proud citizens of both sides of the Metroplex attest that their favorite city (or county as the case may be) is the best. It’s time to let the people of North Texas settle this matter the old-fashioned way. Tug-of-war!

Mark your calendar for a day of rivalry and fun for the whole family on August 11 at Joe Pool Lake’s Lynn Creek Park in Grand Prairie. Teams from both sides of the Metroplex will face off in an epic battle between east and west, with each team raising at least $10,000 for Children’s Cancer Fund (CCF). The event will be free and open for spectators of all ages. There will be music, activities for kids and more!
