Default Dallas Sidekicks Game (Tonight)
If you like mass balloon popping at an indoor stadium, tonight the Dallas Sidekicks indoor soccer team plays a preseason game. Free to attend with a canned food donation. They pass out balloons during the 3rd period and everyone blows them up and pops them at the start of the 4th period. It is awesome!!! I've never seen more balloon popping at one place and it's great people watching with balloons. You see timid ones, people covering their ears, people blowing to pop, sit to pop, everything. Love it!!!

I'm not going to the game tonight. But, here is a picture from a couple years ago. I do have a video from that night but file size is too large to upload.

This will give you an idea. Most everyone blows up a balloon and then pops it on the countdown. It's pretty loud in the indoor stadium. But, I love watching the people interact with balloons. What's really cool is you know almost everyone is going to pop their balloon on the countdown or at least sometime during the game. Some people wait and pop them in the parking garage; you know how loud that is with concrete walls and with the echo.

One evening after a game, a family of four were walking back to their car and the little boy had his balloon and his sister was begging her Mom to let her pop it. She kept on asking to pop it and her Mom was saying "No, you've already popped your balloon let him keep his."

I've heard of this before but never seen it. I'd love to see a video of people bustin a ton of loons at one of those games. Think I'd have to stuff my pocket with green loons before I went to a game hehe

I didn't go to this preseason game. But, looking at the Live feed; doesn't seem like they did the Balloon Pop. I hope they have the Balloon Pop for all their Regular Season games. This is a tradition that goes back to the 80's.

I remember going to my first Sidekicks game at Reunion arena in downtown Dallas. I had no idea it was going to happen, then all of a sudden I'm looking around and people are blowing up balloons, some are popping, then a countdown and popping fills the arena. I was hooked.

I've never seen the players pop balloons. You can find video of the people in the stands doing the balloon pop at the beginning of the 4th period. https://youtu.be/DU5q-FuUGvE?t=6980

There are more videos of Sidekick Home games at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVQ...QRQCR7g/videos
