THE AMERICAN Semi-Finals head to Ft. Worth next week and we want fans to come be part of the festivities.  Bring your family and plan to meet your friends at the RFD-TV FanZone from Tuesday, Feb. 14 - Saturday, Feb. 18 at the historic stockyards.  Each day, the FanZone will feature live music, food trucks, beer and more for hours of entertainment leading up to the nightly Semi-Finals rodeo performances.

The celebration of THE AMERICAN starts on Tuesday, February at 11:30 AM as the Patriot Guard motorcycle club escorts The Wall That Heals to the stockyard.  The Wall That Heals is a traveling, half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.  The full exhibit includes the 250-ft. wall, erected in a chevron-shape and made of 24 individual panels of powder-coated aluminum on aluminum frames. More than 58,000 names of service members who died in the Vietnam Conflict are enshrined on the wall. A mobile education center accompanies the wall, telling the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict and providing historical and cultural context about American experiences in Vietnam. The Wall That Heals will be available for viewing 24 hours a day until Saturday, Feb. 18 at 3 PM.

The American FanZone will be open from 10 AM to 10 PM daily, Feb. 14-18, along Exchange Avenue from Cowtown Coliseum to Stockyards Station. Activities include food trucks and beer vendors and a stage with six different musical acts performing each day from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday’s music theme is Texas Country, Thursday’s is Hispanic Heritage and Friday’s is Classic Country.
