Dallas will be one of 5 cities to host the first ever National Red Bull Flugtag event this fall on September 21, 2013. The event is always full of high energy, lots of entertainment, and plenty of Red Bull for the spectators. Participants from all over the state will showcase their flying crafts and launch them off a 30 foot high ledge.
The Red Bull team is returning to Dallas/Fort Worth area after the success of last summer’s Red Bull Soapbox Derby. The Flugtag event will take place on Lake Carolyn located in the Las Colinas area of Irving, TX. The location is minutes from the Irving Convention Center and a short drive from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The contestants will be judged on three main criteria: Since this is a flying competition, the first is Distance, the second is Creativity of the Craft, and Showmanship – a standing ovation from the crowd is always a plus. Bragging rights are not the only thing that the winners receive, a number of prizes will be awarded to the top teams.
When coming to Las Colinas for the Red Bull Flugtag, be sure you book your stay at the Wingate by Wyndham Las Colinas. The location is walking distance to Lake Carolyn. The hotel features free wi-fi and provides a hot breakfast each morning to get your day started, and a complimentary shuttle to and from the DFW International Airport.
