Houston Super Bowl Host Committee and City of Houston Announce Additional Touchdown Tour Dates
October 4, 2016 -- In partnership with Mayor Turner and the City of Houston, the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee announced a slate of upcoming event dates on Tuesday for the one-of-a-kind fan experience: the Touchdown Tour. The first of the 11 dates will be held on October 8, at Mason Park, located at 75th Street and Tipps.
The Touchdown Tour, designed to bring the excitement of the Super Bowl to the Houston area as the region prepares to Houston Super Bowl LI in February, will feature interactive games, a Houston Texans mobile locker room, special photo booths, giveaways, music and more. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. On both Friday and Saturday, the Host Committee will also engage the community through a combination of its Touchdown Houston legacy initiatives regarding education health and community enhancement.
“Not everyone will be able to be in the seats at NRG Stadium on game day in February, but that should not mean they don’t get to experience the fun,” said Mayor Turner. “The Touchdown Tour will take the Super Bowl experience on the road to neighborhoods all over Houston. I want to thank the host committee for delivering on my request to figure out a way for all Houstonians to participate in the excitement leading up to the big game.”
Selected community parks will host the Touchdown Tour dates with the exception of the November 19th date which will take place at Kingwood High School.
“The Houston Super Bowl Host Committee and the City of Houston are committed to giving all residents an unparalleled Super Bowl experience,” Sallie Sargent, the President and CEO of the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, said. “We want to bring the excitement of Super Bowl LI into the community, and Mayor Turner and the City of Houston have been instrumental in turning this vision into a reality.” The Touchdown Tour’s kickoff event was held August 27 at the nonprofit science and space learning center, Space Center Houston followed by a stop at Joint Base San Antonio.
