DANBURY, Conn. -- The long-awaited Danbury Sports Dome will host an open house on Aug. 15, 16 and 17 at 25 Shelter Rock Lane.
The hours are noon to 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17.
Guests are invited to check out the facilities and programs at the Dome, which opened last month. Some of programs during the open house will include a shootout against a soccer goalie, pitching accuracy test, speed and agility test, inflatables, arcade games, chair massages and raffles. Guests can also grab a bite at the Upper 90 Café.
It is the largest domed facility on the East Coast, according to a business website. The dome, which opened July 22 after months of delays, includes more than 100,000 square feet of space.
Construction began in June 2012 after three years of planning. Superstorm Sandy last November caused some construction delays, and a harsh winter further hampered efforts to install parking. Soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, wrestling and field hockey are some of the sports that can be played there.
Visit the Danbury Sports Dome website for more information on the open house and sports offered.
