Amp up your fall family activities by showing some Purple Pride and go to a TCU Horned Frogs home game. This weekend marks TCU Family Weekend, and no better time to “Amp it Up” than now. Start off by wearing purple and getting to the game a few hours before kick-off. The family fun starts around Frog Alley where kids can stay entertained with bounce houses and activities like face painting and balloon artists. Live music keeps the mood festive as do all the tailgating families and food vendors surrounding the stadium. Don’t miss the exciting Frog Walk where you can cheer on the football players and coaches followed by the marching band as they walk into the stadium.


Frog Alley closes about half an hour before kick-off. This gives your family plenty of time to get to your seats inside the newly renovated Amon G. Carter stadium. During the game there’s lots of fanfare. Every time the Frogs score you’ll hear the Frog Horn, see lots of flag waving, and maybe even see a few fireworks. In case you need extra energy to cheer on the Frogs, look to the concessions for stadium favorites like corn dogs and nachos and food from local favorites Fred’s Texas Cafe and Buffalo Bros.

There’s plenty to do around Fort Worth pre and post game. If kickoff isn’t until the evening take the opportunity to visit the Fort Worth Zoo or the Log Cabin Village near the TCU campus. You could also visit the museums in the Cultural District like the family friendly Fort Worth Museum of Science and History or the Cowgirl Museum. Make time to see the Sundance Square Plaza in Downtown and its beautiful fountains. You can frolic in them from 2-6PM and then head to the game. Explore more family fun in Fort Worth.
