On April 16, Park Village celebrated its grand opening in a grand way: With its Sip, Shop & Rock event. More than 1,000 attendees, including Southlake Mayor Laura Hill, city council members and representatives of Excel Trust, which owns Park Village, joined in the fun.
A ribbon-cutting at the center’s fountain officially commemorated Park Village’s grand opening. VIP ticketholders enjoyed complimentary food and drink samples, swag bags, giveaway opportunities and other special perks. Sales from VIP tickets raised $5,000 for the Miracle League of Southlake, an organization that provides opportunities for local children and young adults to play baseball, regardless of their abilities.
The Gin Blossoms played a free public concert at 7 p.m., rocking out with their top hits such as “Hey Jealousy” and “Found Out About You.”
To continue the celebration, Park Village will give away prizes from its stores and restaurants on social media. To enter, event attendees are encouraged to share their best photos and videos from Sip, Shop & Rock with the hashtag #shopparkvillage.
