Disney and its cast of characters celebrated DOWNTOWNDALLAS’ 50th birthday at Pegasus Plaza on October 14th as part of the launch of Disney’s “What Will You Celebrate?” campaign. The campaign is designed to help families enjoy special milestones in their lives from birthdays and anniversaries to graduations and reunions. Bright red Mickey Mouse-shaped balloons covered the plaza, and invitations to win a ‘celebrate vacation’ to a Disney park or a special birthday celebration surprise were handed out to passers-by.

Council member Pauline Medrano proclaimed the day to be “Disney Parks ‘What Will You Celebrate?’ Tour Day” and a representative from Disney presented John Crawford, President and CEO of DOWNTOWNDALLAS, with a cake celebrating their 50th anniversary.
