Description

Hosted by Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark, FlowaPalooza is a three-day, family-friendly free festival happening on the water park's lawn at EpicCentral Grand Prairie. The expanded 2022 event will offer a weekend packed with activities and attractions, including a daily lineup of free concerts and the 2022 FlowTour World Championship.

Surfing competition
The top simulated surfing athletes from across the U.S. and around the world will compete on the Epic Water's FlowRider attraction for a chance to win more than $20,000 in prize money. There is no additional charge for guests to watch the competition.  Surf Competition schedule: Friday 11am–8pm; Saturday 10am–8pm; Sunday 10am–4pm; Competition end times may run early or late.

There will be a section of the waterpark where people can gather and watch the competition for free. No admission is required unless they want to also swim and slide. 

Activities
Note that during this weekend, families cannot surf on the FlowRider itself, as that area will be tied up for the surfing athletes practice and competition. But there will be lots available at the family festival outdoors, featuring Epic Circus performances, food trucks and a beer garden, a Boho Market, and many more games and activities in the Family Village:
- robo surfing (similar to a mechanical bull but you're on a surf board!)
- face painting
- pickle ball
- laser tag
- rock climbing
- zorb ball
- paddle boarding
