The Crayola Experience Plano at The Shops at Willow Bend has quickly become one of Plano’s most popular kids attractions … but it’s fun for adults too. The 60,000 square-foot concept which includes 22 hands-on activities opens on select nights for a fun adults-only event called “Crayola After Dark”. Wine is included.

The next Crayola After Dark is slated for August 17 from 7 to 10 p.m. and is in the style of a “craft and sip” event in which participants will make a Paisley Vase to take home with them. Tickets also include food, two glasses of wine, DJ, photos with a Crayola Character and even “playtime in the attraction”.

Tickets for this “night of colorful fun” are just $39.99 per person and annual season ticket holders get a 10% discount.
