The Star Community Day
The Dallas Cowboys and North Texas-based Frito Lay will host The Star Community Day, presented by Tostitos, on Sunday, September 18, from 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM. The day will be free of charge to guests, with exception of concessions. Parking and viewing the facility will not have an associated cost. 
Guests will be able to view Tostitos Championship Plaza at The Star, the interior of Ford Center, including the high school locker rooms, and enjoy family-friendly activities such as bounce houses and games, as well as appearances by Rowdy, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and Dallas Cowboys alumni. 
Youth are invited to participate in a Play 60 Clinic on the Ford Center field taught by former NFL players including Damon Denson, Romby Bryant and former Cowboys greats Mel Renfro and Everson Walls. 
The Star Community Day, presented by Tostitos, is a thank you to Frisco for welcoming the Dallas Cowboys to the area.
