Heath Special Events Series


Part of what makes Heath a special place to live and work is our community’s warm, friendly, hometown spirit. Nowhere is this more evident than when friends and neighbors gather at the numerous Special Events hosted throughout the year in Towne Center Park.

From kicking off the Christmas Season at Holiday in the Park, to celebrating freedom with the Annual Independence Day Parade and Patriotic festivities afterwards, there is a full calendar of activities with lots of new and exciting features to be announced in the coming months.

So check back here, watch your City newsletter and follow us for all the latest details. You can also sign up for the City’s new eletter on our homepage.

Easter in the Park…

Featuring the Hearth of Heath 5k/NEW Family 1-Mile Run

Heart of Heath 5k

The Heart of Heath 5k was established in 1994 by a group of dedicated volunteers to help raise funds for the construction of Towne Center Park, located behind Heath City Hall.

Today, Towne Center Park is the “heart” of all City events, and this gathering has been expanded to include Easter festivities like a Bunny Dash for 10,000 Easter Eggs, arts and crafts for the kids, and more fun soon to be announced.

See the 2014 5k run results and image gallery.

Holiday in the Park

Annual Holiday Tree Lighting

This is an annual favorite featuring the musical talents of our local students, the Christmas tree lighting, a winter village with some of Dallas’ most popular food trucks, a cozy outdoor dining area warmed by holiday lights, a miniature train ride, and fun activity booths for the kids.

There’s always plenty of complimentary hot cocoa, while Mrs. Claus and her elves serve complimentary Christmas cookies, home baked and donated by the National Charity League and Rockwall Women’s League.

Of course, the star of the evening is Santa. After his grand arrival, he’s eager to visit and take photos with the children in his sleigh, nestled in a picture perfect scene. Bring your camera!
