DCRB shine at Carnival Cruise Line's "Ultimate Cowboys Fan Fest"

Carnival Cruise Line, Texas' largest cruise operator and the Official Cruise Line of the Dallas Cowboys, provided a day of gridiron-inspired fun at the Ultimate Cowboys Fan Fest held on a picture perfect fall day at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas.
Over 6,000 fans enjoyed a full schedule of activities including multiple performances by the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers presented by Miller Lite, the NFL's first and only co-ed hip hop professional dance team in the NFL.
Darren Woodson, a three-time Super Bowl champion with the Cowboys who was inducted into the team's Ring of Honor on Nov. 1, served as emcee for the event, which also included appearances by the Cowboys' mascot Rowdy, Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Drumline and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and was capped off by a free concert by country music superstar Trace Adkins who treated fans to an hour-long performance of his biggest hits.
"We couldn't ask for a better partner than Carnival Cruise Line to help us keep up the Cowboys spirit even on a bye week," said Eric Sudol, Vice President, corporate partnership sales and service for the Dallas Cowboys. "We were excited to see fans and Dallas residents not only enjoy Carnival's activities but interact with the Dallas Cowboys' fan favorites and Cowboys legend, Darren Woodson. Carnival's Ultimate Cowboys Fan Fest truly mirrored what we love to achieve at AT&T Stadium with our fans."
The action got underway at noon and the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers had three different performances on the big stage prior to Adkins taking the stage around 3 p.m. Attendees also had the opportunity to get autographed DCRB squad photos and have their picture made with members of the DCRB team.
"Performing at the Ultimate Cowboys Fan Fest was amazing," said second year veteran DCRB dancer Chris Portley. "It was a completely humbling experience to get to interact with the thousands of Dallas Cowboys fans who came out to the event."
Carnival essentially delivered its unique cruise experience to the popular 5.2-acre deck park that bridges Uptown and downtown Dallas, with mini-golf, a bean bag toss, ping pong, an inflatable slide shaped like the line's iconic funnel, face-painting and a re-creation of the Football Academy training camp. Throughout the day, contestants were chosen at random and given the chance to compete in a football toss against Woodson and at the top of every hour, one lucky attendee was chosen to win a Carnival cruise giveaway.
"Creating fun and memorable moments is at the heart of what we do here at Carnival Cruise Line," said Christine Duffy, Carnival's president. "Even though this is a bye week for the Cowboys, we're thrilled to bring our unmistakable brand of spirit and excitement to create a fun game day atmosphere for Dallas fans."
