FOLKS WE CERTAINLY APPRECIATE ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR OUR 8TH WONDER! WE ALSO THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP TO SUPPORT PRESERVATION OVER DEMOLITION IN ALL OF HARRIS COUNTY!

UPDATE: ON MARCH 31, 2015 ALL OF OUR HONORABLE ELECTED OFFICIALS MET TO ANNOUNCE THAT THEY ARE NOW HARD AT WORK TO DEVELOP A PLAN THAT WOULD TURN OUR ICONIC DOME SWEET DOME INTO THE WORLD'S LARGEST INDOOR PARK WITH A SURROUNDING GREEN SPACE! HARRIS COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT GAVE THE GO-AHEAD TO DEVISE A PLAN THAT WOULD IMPLEMENT THE (ULI) URBAN LAND INSTITUTE'S PROPOSAL TO CREATE A CIVIC SPACE OUT OF THE DOME, WHICH OPENED IN APRIL OF 1965 AND WAS UNFORTUNATELY LEFT NEGLECTED SINCE 2009. HARRIS COUNTY JUDGE ED EMMETT HOPES THAT AN ACCEPTABLE PLAN TO RE- PURPOSE OUR BELOVED DOME CAN BE PRESENTED TO THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WITHIN A COUPLE OF MONTHS OR LESS.

ON APRIL 2ND, 2015: OUR HONORABLE JUDGE ED EMMETT HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THE COUNTY IS THROWING A FREE CELEBRATION AT THE ASTRODOME. THIS COMING THURSDAY NIGHT, APRIL 9TH (6-8PM) FOR ALL TO CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF OUR DOME SWEET DOME! (THOSE WHO CANNOT ATTEND ARE WELCOME TO VIRTUALLY MEET UP ON FACEBOOK'S HOUSTON HISTORY GROUP FOR OUR DOME'S 50TH BIRTHDAY ON THE EVENING OF APRIL 9TH, 2015.) WOW, REALLY ITS BEEN "50 YEARS" THAT THE DOME HAS BEEN AROUND! TO ALL WHO LOVE THE DOME...WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO BE THERE WITH US ON THIS SPECIAL HISTORIC EVENING! ENTER AT KIRBY AND MCNEE. THERE'S FREE PARKING IN RED LOT 4. BE THERE BETWEEN 6 AND 8 PM, DOME LOVERS WILL ENJOY FREE "DOME DOGS" AND SODA POP AMONGST OTHER AWESOME FESTIVE ATTRACTIONS. THERE WILL ALSO BE A GIANT DOME 50TH ANNIVERSARY BIRTHDAY CAKE, FOOD TRUCKS, 8TH WONDER BREWERY BEER, FACE PAINTING, BALLOON ARTISTS, DJ, SUPER-CROSS MOTORCYCLES, A SOUVENIR GIVEAWAY AND THE MONSTER JAM TRUCK OUTLAW. BEGINNING AT 7 PM FOLKS WILL BE IN FOR A RARE CHANCE TO TAKE A 'SELFIE' ON THE FAMOUS DOME FLOOR! SO FOLKS COME OUT TO THE BALLPARK AND TOGETHER LET'S ALL MAKE HISTORY!

***PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ALSO MOVING THE PROPOSED RALLY DATE (TBD) AT LEAST UP ANOTHER MONTH, PERHAPS IN MAY, IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE FOLKS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND AT THIS TIME. FOLKS WE ARE STILL PROPOSING THAT WE ALL JOIN TOGETHER AND RALLY OUR HEARTS TO SURROUND THE DOME IN THE NEAR FUTURE BUT ON A REALISTIC NOTE, UNFORTUNATELY WE STILL DON"T HAVE A LARGE ENOUGH NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS SIGNING UP FOR THIS PROPOSED HISTORIC DOME RALLY EVENT. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS PROPOSED RALLY ALL AROUND TO YOUR CIRCLES OF FAMILY, FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES AND COMMUNITY! ONCE WE ARE ABLE TO REACH A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS WE WILL DEFINITELY PROCEED WITH THIS AWESOME PROPOSED HISTORIC GATHERING OF SUPPORT FOR OUR DOME!***

PLEASE STAY TUNED IN AND ACTIVE IN OUR COMBINED EFFORTS TO SHOW OUR LOVE FOR OUR ICONIC DOME. THANKS! ;-)
