The famous game show The Price is Right is scheduled to roll into Dallas Thursday, April 7, along its 50th anniversary tour.
According to a news release, The Price is Right Come on Down Tour will bring its mobile game show on wheels to iconic spots nationwide, “connecting with fans and giving them a chance to play Plinko, spin THE PRICE IS RIGHT wheel, and compete in a Showcase Showdown as well as enjoy fun photo ops and experience the show’s magic firsthand.
“Fans will also be able to win prizes supporting beloved local business partners whose history is deeply tied to 1972, the year THE PRICE IS RIGHT premiered.” We haven’t yet nailed down what that means for specific local businesses, but please let us know if your local business is in cahoots with CBS.

The COME ON DOWN TOUR is an expansion of our mission to bring fans closer to what they love in new and exciting ways, while simultaneously supporting iconic local business partners in each city.”
